Fiona's Comments

Risking the wrath of drummer Matt Wilson and a lump of coal, we're featuring a different track this year on Christmas Day. Eklund provides us with a nice straight-ahead tune perfect for visions of winter landscapes, snow falling over pine trees, and a glowing fireplace nearby.

About the Album

"What is Crafty Christmas?" you may ask. Inspired by his sister's tradition of gathering with friends to make hand-crafted Christmas presents, the New York trumpeter, in the same spirit, created this recording as a gift to his parents. Properly unassuming and sweetly swinging, his quartet covers the familiar hymns and songs of the season, and is joined by vocalist Kevin-Anthony for season-perfect renditions of "The Christmas Song," and "I'll Be Home For Christmas." Eklund's original, "Two as One," written for his sister's wedding, creates a very appropriate coda to a project that will hopefully inspire many others' Crafty Christmases!
