Additional Personnel / Information
Tobin Mueller: solo piano.
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)]
