CD of the Month - December 2014

The KCCK Featured CD for December is "Home for the Holidays" from Joey DeFrancesco. The keyboardist recalls listening to Sixties-era Hammond organ Christmas albums from Jimmy Smith, Don Patterson and Jimmy McGriff and it's a project he's had in mind to do for a long time. Disc one of the two disc set features what Joey calls "the typical Christmas party songs" while the second includes the more traditional liturgical side of Christmas music. DeFrancesco and his colleagues bring fresh life to a treasure trove of some 23 tunes while respecting the core melodies that have made them so popular. "Home for the Holidays" is from JD Music.
