I am so excited....I have a rule not to listen to Christmas music
before Thanksgiving but I purchased Jared Johnson's new CD called
Christmas in the Key of J about a month ago and I allowed myself
to break my rule to listen to it before the "holiday"
season. I was not disappointed rule breaking...The CD is awesome.
Several of the songs are refreshing and entertaining variations
on traditional Christmas music. I found myself listening to it several
times last night. I found the tempo just right...not too slow where
it would put me to sleep but just right for keeping my body &
might alert while working on other things. This is definitely a
must have to add to your Christmas music collection.
When I was listening to the song sample of Angels We Have Heard
on High, our 4-year-old daughter came in and said, "What is
that? It's beautiful." She wanted to listen to it over and
over. She's a fan.
Jared Johnson's new release, Christmas in the Key of J, is a polished
collection of holiday tunes you know and love done "Johnson
style." His ability to capture the feel of an entire rhythm
section through a solo piano arrangement is mesmerizing. Christmas
in the Key of J is the perfect addition to your Christmas music
It's wonderful music to listen to, because it's modern enough that
you're never bored. It fills you with a sense of peace and relaxation.
Spiritually uplifting and phenomenal
I have finally had a chance to listen to the album and it is beautiful,
especially the Canon in D. The best I have ever heard that piece
played, by anyone. Thank you so much for letting me know about the
Just a note to let you know how much we love your CD. The arrangements
are so moving- it will definitely be our new Christmas Tree decorating
CD. You've done an awesome job and I've passed the word along to
my extended family.
Your music is great! I hope to perform with you someday.
I loved Christmas in the Key of J! My friend Jared has created
