Album Description

A collection of jazz interpretations of traditional Christmas carols for solo piano. Mueller captures the quiet simplicity, expectant playfulness, and over-riding joy of the season. Destined to become your favorite Christmas album.Tobin Mueller's "Midwinter Born is one of the most original solo piano Christmas albums I've ever heard. Using a broad mix of musical styles - usually more jazz than new age but impossible to classify - Mueller puts a very personal spin on a collection of eighteen songs of the season that includes several medleys. From the gorgeous cover artwork to the extended liner notes on Mueller's website, this project was lovingly created as a personal expression of the joy and meaning of the Christmas holidays." (Kathy Parsons, Mainly Piano). "Tobin Mueller’s Midwinter Born is a top solo piano pick this year. He has a lot that’s new to say with a generous helping of standards." [Dr. Christmas (Gerry Grzyb)]

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
