You can see the snow gently drifting down through the sky, taste the eggnog, and feel the yuletide spirit gently wrapping its arms around you as Vintage Christmas Trio pleasantly glides on by. Building on a branding-savvy holiday portfolio that includes Vintage Christmas (Prescott Records, 2011) and Vintage Christmas Wonderland (Prescott Records, 2014), pianist David Ian delivers a stripped-down set of ten holiday chestnuts that values clarity and concision.

Christmas albums often try to sell themselves with novelty value, athleticism, and/or pizzazz, but Ian won’t have any of that. His music is straightforward. And while it certainly falls under the jazz heading, don’t look for lengthy solos, wild trips afield, bluesy bluster, or radical redesigns. There’s a spare elegance to Ian’s vision of Christmas that’s in keeping with the meaning of the holiday and the feeling of the season.
