Album Description

This recording is about the joy, peace, love, and happiness that should traverse the world during the holiday seasons and throughout the whole year. I am a Christian, and this recording is about the reason for the Christmas season: the observance and re-enactment of the circumstances of the birth of Jesus. But this music is also an offering to human beings of all faiths and non- faiths, of the beautiful sounds of which I am blessed to be one of many, many channeling spirits. I have experienced great joy and upliftment from hundreds of holiday recordings, and it is a dream fulfilled to offer my take on some of this repertoire, as well as a few of my original compositions. I was inspired by so many artists for this record date that I can’t list them all in this paragraph. But I especially want to cite my mother, Eva S. Hoggard, who played Christmas tunes on the piano and organ at family events all year long and my father, Bishop J. Clinton Hoggard, who taught my brother Paul and me the reason for the season. My special thanks to my friend and collaborator of many years, the brilliant James Weidman, and to the great Bruce Cox and McAuthor Jackson for their contributions to this project. I also thank my beautiful wife, Donna , our children, Jamal and Kalila, and all of our beloved family and friends. Have yourself a joyous holiday season. May God’s Peace and Blessings be with you all year long. Jay
