Ambient Xmas

Ambient Xmas

Chart positions

This show was 4th in the global ambient chart and 6th in the global chillout chart.

Thanks to a wonderful album from Matt Borghi I decided to give a holiday ambient a shot. Matt's album is called simply - "Ambient Guitar for Christmas."

Jackie Gleason (yes, the great actor and comedian Jackie Gleason who was also a great conductor and arranger) has to be the godfather of ambient christmas. My mom would play this his "Merry Christmas" album every year and it created a great soundtrack for the magical aspects of Christams Eve - the fireplace, sparkling snow, the stary night sky, etc. It's some of the most dreamy xmas music I have heard - Haunting choruses, dreamy strings, delicate bells, and mellow vibraphones ake this my favorite Xmas album of all time. "Snowfall" & "Christmas in Paris" are standout tracks on this album. Mixing major and minor keys and the super high saprano vocals on both tracks towards the last half of the pieces are ambient bliss: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxa6dZ7XTO4 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cxiQ3zh-Ag
