IVAN PARKER - Christmas Dreaming
Just in time for the holidays, Ivan Parker is returning with a new full-length Christmas album featuring some of his favorite songs of the season. Showcasing his award-winning signature vocals atop big band horns, jazz piano runs and lush orchestrations, Parker seamlessly delivers a range of Christmas classics, including "There's No Place Like Home For The Holidays" and "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year," alongside such sacred selections as "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" and "What Child Is This," among others.
"It's my hope that this collection presents the spirit of Christmas morning--the peace that brings us closer together at the holidays," said Parker. "‘It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year' and ‘There's No Place Like Home For The Holidays' take me right back to my childhood and Christmas with my family. And the newer classic, ‘My Grown Up Christmas List,' is so fitting for the times we live in now. With much confusion and division in the world, it was important for me to have a song about love, peace and the restoration of joy. Forget the problems and the things that divide us and let's go back to what the season is all about."
"Most of all, I want people to understand the real reason for Christmas," Parker emphasizes. "Carols like ‘What Child Is This' and ‘It Came Upon A Midnight Clear' point us back to the manger. These are the songs that present Jesus, the true Hope of Christmas." Make it a very Merry Christmas season with Ivan Parker's "Christmas Dreaming."
