iTunes Review

David Ian—a.k.a. Dave Ghazarian of Superchick renown—delivers a tasty assortment of holiday tunes on the appropriately titled Vintage Christmas. In contrast to the aggressive pop/rock of his regular group, Ian here elects for a jazz-trio approach, augmented by the vocals of Acacia Wulfing (of Tal & Acacia) and Andre Miguel Mayo. His elegant piano work—inviting comparisons to Vince Guaraldi and Bill Evans—lends the album a ‘50s-era hipster feel. Jon Estes’ melodic upright bass and Brian Fitch’s light but sturdy drums keep the rhythms flowing nicely. Wulfing shines with her caressing, Norah Jones–like vocals on “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.” Mayo’s easy-swinging delivery of “Let It Snow” and “Christmas Time with You” (a David Ian original) kindles memories of holiday recordings by the likes of Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole. Instrumentals like “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” give the band room to stretch out and solo in fine style. It’s performed with a smooth touch and plenty of heart.

Customer Reviews

Complex with melodic changes but extremely smooth.

I'm not a jazz expert. This album is one that is played in the background as you sit next the crackling fire, snow is falling outside, a night cap, and you have a nice book in your hand. This album is smooth, crisp with the beats, his touches on the piano are creative and perfect, and highly enjoyable on the ears. Part of me hopes David Ian can produce more music like this all year round. I feel shortchanged, hoping for more than 11 tracks, but I believe as a whole, its complete. It's been on repeat since I purchased it and now I want Christmas to be next week. He definitely strung me along to the mood and beauty behind Christmas. It's worth the purchase!

Sweet!

Enjoying this album that I bought yesterday. It's now a part of my holiday playlist and getting a lot of plays. Acacia's vocals remind me of Billie Holiday's "Moonglow". David's voice sounds like the jazz greats from long ago. If you want a smooth, Christmas album you can kick back to, I highly recommend this one.

Love It

I love Jazz and I was waiting for a great album to come out for my Christmas and finally I found it. Thank you David Ian for giving me this great gift for my Christmas !!!! I love it
