It Should Be Called CHRISTmas LIVE - the 2016 solo piano album by Tom Rule

Almost ready! “IT Should Be Called CHRISTmas LIVE”

In December of 2015, to celebrate the release of my last album It Should Be Called CHRISTmas, I did a live webcast of many of the tunes on solo piano from the piano the album was recorded on, down at ShadowSound Studios in Macon.

The performance went so well that I decided to release the audio from the performance as a digital only release.

I prevailed on my family graphics/marketing team again to tweak the album design, and the album is ALMOST ready for public consumption.

Although the album will sound MUCH better than the original video audio, you can watch the show over on youtube at http://bit.ly/CHRISTmasLIVE

If you’d like to hear the back-stories on the original album, here are some short videos I recorded telling them –> http://bit.ly/CHRISTmasStories

Live Performance @ the Steinway Gallery

Last Saturday I performed with the Inimitable Joey Stuckey at the Steinway Piano Gallery in Alpharetta, GA [aka outside Atlanta]. IT was a PHENOMENAL piano, in perfect shape. I was in awe!

We did some jazz standards, plus several tunes from our album MIXTURE, and I played a couple of tracks from “It Should Be Called CHRISTmas”.

Compliments of the iPhone in the back, bungee-corded to a music stand, and Facebook, there is a video at bit.ly/jsbsteinway.

Please check it out, and share!

Recording MIXTURE – the process

Joey Stuckey and I recorded a video looking at the process we used to record Joey’s album MIXTURE. It was an interesting amalgam of all the different methods used by artists over the last several decades.

CHRISTmas Live in process……

I gave a live online CD release performance back in December celebrating the CHRISTmas album. Almost done editing the video. More news soon! #CHRISTmas #CHRISTmasLive

I was in Barnes & Noble today….

And saw the book of music paper that I spent over a year writing in for the CHRISTmas album.

  
It made me wonder – briefly – if there was another album rattling around in my brain.

As I pondered that – and thought about what went into the album, and what it took out of me – I thought

Maybe. But not yet. Definitely not now.


Nice article about the CHRISTmas album

I performed most of the latest album on solo piano, PLUS played several from an earlier Christmas album and a smattering of material that I just wanted to play! It was broadcast from ShadowSound Studios in Macon, where the CHRISTmas album was recorded.

We had a bunch of people watch it live – hope you enjoy it!
