Editorial Reviews

Product Description

On her first ever holiday album, Geri Allen dives into her ocean-deep musical
spirituality to come up with a series of angelic solo arrangements to laud
the King of Kings in the season of giving. This stunning release follows
acclaimed solo debut Flying Toward The Sound (2010).

5.0 out of 5 stars more than a holiday album January 22, 2012

I love Geri Allen anyway, but this is just fabulous. Who would think there could be anything new brought to traditional Christmas music, even by a master? There is fresh interpretation everywhere here. I can't put it away. Beautiful - Allen's harmonies and improv are original, and yet, this is sacred music, still. Her touch is sure but gentle.

5.0 out of 5 stars New christmas March 24, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I have a lot of Christmas jazz purchased over the years. Each year now, I purchase one or two worthy pieces. This is a worthy piece to add to the collection. A Child is Born is masterful piano as only Geri Allen can do.

5.0 out of 5 stars PERFECTA NAVIDAD November 27, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
No me gustan los CD navideños, tan propios en el mundo anglosajon. Suelen ser una oportunidad para hacer discos melosos y sin autentico contenido, mas alla que la oportunidad de sacar un nuevo disco. No es este caso. Geri Allen es la mejor pianista de jazz viva. Posee una tecnica endiablada, sobre por su personalisimo uso de su mano izquierda. En sus obras inmediatamente anteriores la tecnica prevalecia sobre el corazon, aqui es lo inverso. Ha conseguido un magnifico CD, lleno de sentimiento y que sabe aunar tecnica y sentimiento. Las canciones navideñas, algunas de ellas tradicionales y otras nuevas son de una simplicidad que abruman. Incluso el uso de instrumentos electronicos o las voces son exquisitos y no empañan el resultado final. Un disco de Navidad que no lo parece y que seguro se podra escuchar en pleno verano. Allen en toda su plenitud. Recomendable para los amantes del jazz, de las canciones populares y de la tecnica al servicio de los sentimientos. Excelente y singular.
