The biggest surprise of the year is John Zorn's beautiful Christmas CD. Zorn has hand picked seven of his favorite Christmas songs, penned two lovely originals and they are performed here in classic Dreamers style with plenty of exciting solos, exotic colors and catchy lyricism. Filled with a joyful holiday spirit, innocence, a touch of nostalgia and a charming lyricism, this is music for all ages that will make you smile with delight from the very first notes. As a special treat, vocalist Mike Patton delivers an intimate and heartfelt rendition of Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire, making A Dreamers Christmas an instant classic, and an essential CD for any contemporary Christmas celebration. PICTURE DISC ALSO AVAILABLE ON HI QUALITY LIMITED EDITION VINYL.

Drop the needle right at the beginning... vibraphone, fender rhodes, surf guitar. Christmas is really here!
The Dreamers approach includes respectfully straight yet fresh readings to several tunes, especially the gorgeous Claude Thornhill tune Snowfall, as well as improvisationally challenging tales on other less harmonically challenging tunes such as Let it Snow and Santa Clause is Coming to Town.
Then I happened upon an article on NPR about a CD called Dreamer's Christmas; sampled a few tracks on line and knew I had to have this.
The music (some original compositions, some old favorites) is so cleverly, and artistically arranged that even the Christmas 'standards' sound new. I don't gravitate to Jazz, but this CD is the exception. Played it over and over again in my car all season long. My teenage daughter loved it. It's a 'keeper'.
