Christmas Tree-O album coverIt was a snowy day in May when Matt Wilson, Jeff Lederer and Paul Sikivie gathered at Maggie’s Farm recording studio to spread Christmas cheer. The result of that gathering is Matt Wilson’s Christmas Tree-O, a collection of everyone’s favorite holiday tunes that’s destined to be added to holiday music collections all over the globe.

“Wonder and innocence, gaudiness and cheer: can it be any surprise that the jazz drummer Matt Wilson thrives around the holidays? His Christmas Tree-O…does more or less what you’d expect, batting around holiday standards with a mischievous but sentimental air…In any case, the band, with Paul Sikivie on bass and Jeff Lederer on reeds, represents something more than a side project or a symptom of seasonal opportunism. It has its own gait and style.” (The New York Times)
