Guitarist Jeff Golub is offering his first holiday CD, Six String Santa, which he is releasing independently through his Metro Café Records. On the CD, Golub offers his own smooth and funky interpretations of holiday classics like “Deck the Halls,” “Jingle Bells,” “Oh Christmas Tree” and “The First Noel.” In addition, saxophonist Warren Hill is featured on “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.” Golub's band consists of Chris Palmaro on keyboards, Lincoln Goines on bass, Stephen Ferrone and Shawn Pelton on drums, and Roger Squitero on percussion.
The CD is available as a download or in physical form only at jeffgolub.com.
"I’ve always wanted to do a record of Christmas music, but this year it just happened," Golub says. "I went in the studio, and I think we came up with some very spirited arrangements of these classic songs that I love so much. Now, the inspiration for this came kind of late in the year, so it’s not going to be an official release this year. The only way you can get ‘Six String Santa’ is by going to jeffgolub.com. I hope you like this music enough that you’ll play it at your Christmas party this year."
