Christmas Guitar CD

Postby Larry Marchino » Sat Jan 08, 2011 12:38 pm

One of my wife's gifts to me this year was John Standefer's "Christmas Guitar" CD. I just wanted to share with fellow Chet Boarders about it. The arrangements are great! It is very tasteful, with just enough variation to keep the tunes interesting and new, yet holding firmly to the familiar melody so as to maintain tradition. It reminds me of the result Chet would get with his arrangements! Not that it sounds like Chet playing (although Chet's influence is evident), but the tastefulness and effect achieved takes me back to the days after I would spring for a new Chet album.

I have attended John's workshops at CAAS, but I don't really know him so I have no "axe to grind" here. I just wanted to share my opinion on John's Christmas CD. In my opinion it is a good one!

I am a mere civilian (non-player), but I think John is one of the best around. Need to get this one and Steve Wariner's too. Long live Christmas guitar music!
