Cool Yule (ep) by STEVEN TAETZ features new CHRISTMAS HITS 30 November 2017.
Toronto-based singer, lyricist and composer Steven Taetz releases a new EP of Christmas swing and Adult Contemporary material co-written and recorded with leading Canadian jazz artists. The material highlights classic standards as well as newly-written seasonal hits that showcases his writing style, live performance sound, and feature Canadian-created Christmas tunes for anyone wanting to swing with their holiday tunes.
The 4-song EP includes an uptempo big-band-style title track "Cool Yule" made popular first by Louis Armstrong, followed by a dreamy ballad co-written with Montreal's Caracol called "Lovers in the Snow." Another original, "Come Christmas," provides a contrast to every sickly-sweet carol, this one about getting over a broken heart at Christmas, and finally an updated jazz rendition of "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?" with leading horn player Kevin Turcotte.
You can see Steven perform live at artist feature concert for TD's Music Fridays at Union Station on December 22, 4:00pm.
