David Ian – Vintage Christmas Wonderland

Vintage is what David Ian does well and his second holiday EP is spot on classic.

From the jazz piano, the drum brushes, and the enchanting vocals of Tal and Acacia, this album is a bundle of classic coolness. I particularly like “Jingle Bells” with its trio harmonies and jazzy Andrews sisters sound of Tal and Acacia.

Press Release:

“Songs I’ve chosen for the new EP include two instrumentals: a mellow and swinging rendition of ‘O Little Town Of Bethlehem’ and ‘The First Noel,’ featuring a melodic bass solo by Jon Estes. The familiar sound of the vocalists stay true to the Vintage Christmas brand in ‘Angels We Have Heard on High’ and ‘Winter Wonderland,’ with a slight departure in ‘Jingle Bells.’”

“Jingle Bells,” the EP’s final track, is confidently led by Andre Miguel Mayo and decorated by the classic and energetic harmonies of Tal and Acacia who also appeared on Vintage Christmas. Each song easily captures the spirit of the season with an intimate sound that’s warm and inviting.
