Noel

Tianna Hall & Chris Cortez

available for purchase on iTunes & from BlueBambooMusic.com

As one critic stated, ‘Tianna Hall is giving this year's holiday divas some fierce competition. The Houston jazz singer, along with guitarist Chris Cortez, gets in the Christmas spirit with "Noel," a smooth, silky collection of well-worn classics, including "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," "The Christmas Song" and "Santa Baby." The highlight is a gorgeous reading of "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?" It's as warm and comfy as a sweater.’ And that about sums it up. This is an unexpectedly terrific selection of Christmas music offered by one gifted singer surrounded by exemplary colleagues.

Instead of the usual fare this CD offers affine mix of well-known up beat Christmas oldies and some new works well worth noting. But first the company: Vocals - Tianna Hall, Guitar, Additional Vocals - Chris Cortez, Bass - Anthony Sapp, Piano - Paul English, Vibraphone, Drums - Tom Cummings, Trumpet – Dennis Dotson, Tenor Saxophone, Clarinet – Woody Witt, Alto Saxophone, Flute – Warren Sneed, Trombone, Bass Trombone – Thomas Hultén, with special guests Joel Fulgham – Drums and Memo Reza – Drums

The tracks are as follows: The Angels Arr. by Mark Piszczek

A Child Is Born/Christmas Time Is Here – by Thad Jones, Vince Guaraldi, Lee Mendelson, Arr. by Mark Piszczek

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town by J Fred Coots and Haven Gillespie, Arr. by Chris Cortez

The Christmas Song by Mel Tormé, Bob Wells, Arr. by Mark Piszczek

We Three Kings by Reverend John Henry Hopkins, Jr, Arr. by Mark Piszczek

Santa Baby by Joan Javits, Philip Springer. Tony Springer, Arr. by Chris Cortez

Two For The Road

Tianna Hall & The Mexico City Jazz Trio

In cart Not available Out of stock

Tianna's fourth release revisits the musical kinship she shared in her debut recording with The Mexico City Jazz Trio. They were flown to Houston this time and spent a week performing and recording this album. With nods to jazz greats by instrumental quotations, this collaboration also revisits many popular songs from both Tianna & drummer Gabriel's youth including Radiohead, Stone Temple Pilots and 80's band 10cc. The musical growth of all of these stellar musicians is evident when compared to their debut collection of recordings within this ensemble. Miguel Villicaña's exceptionally sophisticated arrangements along with Agustin Bernal's expert leadership make this a timeless and world class recording a tremendous representation of Tianna Hall's abilities as a vocalist and collaborator.
