Over the years I’ve posted these YouTube piano “performances” of my favorite Christmas songs. I present them here in one place and by clicking onto the title, one can read my original reason for recording each. Interspersed are some photographs of Christmas here in Florida. It’s certainly not the same as our Connecticut years but it is the same spirit.
The first is by none other than Bill Evans and it’s the most viewed of my selections.
Here is one of my very favorites, by Vince Guaraldi, something this great jazz pianist wrote for A Charlie Brown Christmas special in 1965.
This is an unusual one in that it was written by none other than Peggy Lee. It’s rarely performed yet beautiful
The Palm Beach Boat Parade organizes in front of Old Port Cove and is preceded by fireworks all along the parade route up to Jupiter.
And the last is one of the iconic Christmas songs we hear again and again, but as I’m away from “home” – NYC where I was born and will always identify with -- it has a special meaning to me.
