NEW ALBUM BY DAVID IAN
With his newest recording, “Vintage Christmas Trio Melody,” David Ian expertly captures the nostalgic feeling of this season of celebration, employing the warmest elements of the jazz tradition with a piano style and emotion that has become his unique voice.
As the title implies, the arrangements stay close to the melody of these Christmas classics with the simplicity of a trio ensemble and a timeless sound. He skillfully departs the listener on a welcome journey never failing to land in a familiar resolve.
Sweetly playful while remaining sophisticated, the choice of tunes is carefully thought out. The widely known themes of these traditional titles all point to the historic Christmas narrative creating a well crafted, focused playlist of favorites for the season.
“I believe the meaning of Christmas to be one of hope in someone greater than ourselves; in the birth of a Savior who ensures that the world need not bear its burdens alone. My objective with these arrangements is to help direct the listener to that sense
of hope” says Ian.
David Ian’s Vintage Christmas Trio Melody is a masterful new approach to this
collection of songs to reflect upon and listen to on your hifi system—a must have for
your Christmas dinner gatherings for years to come!
