Ho ho and a free Chilly Gonzales piano tune for Christmas – snatch it via http://chillygonzales.com/2012/12/free-download-a-minor-christmas-medley/ – if only to remind us of Mr Jason Charles Beck’s excellent “Piano Solo II” album, as released 2012-09 on Gentle Threat (GENTLE017CD). Written and performed at the piano by Chilly Gonzales, recorded and produced in Paris, France, and quite timeless.

“O Tannenbaum” Wyatt’s way ;-) Recorded Summer 1981, released 1982-03 on “Nothing Can Stop Us” (Rough Trade) … Robert Wyatt also wrote the liner notes for a 1991 compilation of ‘7Ts piano pieces by Cornelius Cardew which featured “Red flag prelude” (197X). Hey and can someone please add Mr. Wyatt‘s interpretation to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O_Tannenbaum ?!? [Nope ain’t gonna do it myself.]
Brand new James Brown 2cd Christmas compilation … expanding upon the 1995 budget cd … Yep, it’s a doggone acquired taste. Especially what with the godfather dying on X-mas day and all. In memoriam JB (1933-05-05 > 2006-12-25). Addendum: fyi Charly [uk] have just (2011-11) reissued Mr. Brown’s 1999 X-mas album.
