Various Artists – MoreorlessChristmas5

Most of us associate the excitement over the Christmas season with personal memories from childhood. For some it’s the sight of drifting snowflakes or candles and Christmas tree decorations. Others might be thinking of the scent of baked apples – or even mulled wine. But there’s one memory that everyone has in common: the sound of rustling wrapping paper as you excitedly unpacked your gift-laden stocking.

The latter tradition is the legacy of Nicholas of Myra aka Saint Nicholas, the historical 4th century figure behind Santa Claus. The legends surrounding his deeds as a patron of sailors, merchants and children made him a highly revered saint among Catholics and in general made him one of the world’s most famous gift givers.

So with the advent of Advent we once more wonder what would make the ideal present for a cherished friend or family member. Look no further for the ideal solution than California Sunset Records and moreorlessCHRISTMAS 5. Artists including Till Brönner, Norah Jones and Laura Fygi provide the perfect mood for cosy evenings in by the fireplace. Their enchanting versions of familiar Christmas classics (incl. ”Winter Wonderland”, ”White Christmas”) revive all those childhood memories and nostalgia and help roll back the years.

Andrea Razzauti – Painting The Music

Popular Smooth Jazz guitarist and producer Paul Brown joined forces with multi-talented Andrea Razzauti, artist, composer, and guitarist, on the album, White Sands. Now it’s time for Paul Brown to pay back Andrea’s contribution. Paul produced Andrea Razzauti’s new album Painting The Music.

A man with an artistic quest, Razzauti is on a continual path to discovery when it comes to painting and music. He has always demonstrated a remarkable artistic ability expressed in particular through his steady emphasis on dazzling colors and an infinite explosion of shades which create a universe of living things. His quest is continual, intent on giving life to mages which are more personal and coherent, more significant and unitary.

Painting The Music is an eclectic blend of smooth jazz, classical and Brazilian. Featured on this album is Grammy Award winning jazz vocalist, the legendary, Patti Austin. Be impressed by Painting The Music at CDBaby.
