Release Notes

Includes liner notes by Dawn Atkinson.
While they may not be everyone's cup of herbal tea, the pioneering New Age label Windham Hill could never be accused of being anything less than tasteful. Accordingly, A WINDHAM HILL CHRISTMAS is far from the crass, mass-market commerciality of so many hastily assembled pop-crossover holiday collections. For this outing, Windham Hill gathered together some of their finest artists to create an all-instrumental album featuring re-interpretations of traditional Christmas Carols. So if you think you've heard say, "Deck the Halls" before, just wait until you catch what the sophisticated pianistic skills of Liz Story add to it. The same goes for piano guru George Winston's take on "Christmas is Coming," and on and on. And hey, Thirtysomething lovers, W.G. "Snuffy" Walden, the acoustic guitar whiz who provided that show's theme music turns up here too, delivering his version of the tried and true "The First Noel."
