The piano is always true to me. In times of despair, happiness, and joy, its mood is always my own. -- Bradley Joseph
The object is to transport my listeners to another place, some place sacred and spiritual that will make them glad they took the ride. -- Bradley Joseph

Bradley Joseph - Classic Christmas (piano/instrumental)

More about this artist:

Classic Christmas is the 15th studio album by Bradley Joseph released in 2008 on the Robbins Island Music label. "Christmas classics performed on the piano."[1] While discussing Classic Christmas, Gerry Grzyb, chairman of the University of Wisconsin--Oshkosh sociology department, states that Joseph's usual approach is to play the carol straight, and then add his own twists. "... he's very effective at that—he doesn't stray as far as a jazz or classical organ improviser might, but he does keep the interest up." Grzyb says that the same applies to Joseph's earlier Christmas Around the World CD, which he found even more interesting because of the use of other instrumental sounds (added via keyboards).[2] In a review by Carol Swanson, this album is an hour of "well-executed new age piano", ..."gentle renditions of 14 holiday favorites". She goes on to say that "Joseph's playing is measured and thoughtful, but never plodding, such as "...We Three elegant in its simplicity, with just a touch of exotic flavors". [3]
