What a nice present! Just in time for the Christmas season 2015 Barbara Dennerlein is back with a new album! Combining elements from Pop, Funk, Soul and Fusion she creates Christmas Jazz at it´s best. Since more than 3 decades Barbara Dennerlein is one of the top stars of the international Jazz scene.Several times the prestigous Down Beat Magazine voted her as 'instrumentalist of the year'. She received numerous Jazz Awards and in 2013 she was honoured to become a member of the 'Hammond Hall Of Fame'. NowBarbara Dennerlein presents a soulful selection of Christmas songs played on the famous Hammond B3. Ten fingers, two feet, one instrument.
Together with the support of an All-Star-band and the Italian producer Nicola Conte she recorded an album with a perfect symbiosis of vintage sounds and modern elements. With ease and a fine sense of humor but also with respect for the original material Barbara and her band developed new facets of well known Christmas traditional songs
Beside classics like 'Silent Night' or 'Sleigh Ride' (with Marvin Gaye feeling) you find groovy interpretations of 'We Three Kings', the Miles Davis composition 'Blue Christmas' and smoothy ballads such as 'Christmas Song'.
Her All Star band on 'Christmas Soul' consists of top-reed player Magnus Lindgren, the English jazz vocalist Zara McFarlane and one of the worlds best percussionists Abdissa Assefa
and drummer Robert Ikiz.
