Eugene Ruffolo Even Santa Gets The Blues Hybrid Stereo SACD
One thing is for sure – Christmas is not just one celebration among others,
Christmas is THE ONE celebration of the year. There is no chance to escape ... a
fact known to many a good musician. Christmas albums – they’ve all done it.
Facing this situation, you better bring a lot of sweet ingredients in order to
create a completely new and completely different Christmas cake – especially one
from Stockfisch. Some stalwarts of Stockfisch records to this noble end have
gathered around Eugene Ruffolo; white beards and scarlet coats they wear – but
watch out for their guitars! And finally they achieved the impossible task of
creating a Christmas recording sounding like no other.
Swingle Bells – there ain’t no bells sounding sweeter. If you are a nonbeliever,
then go and listen to Stille Nacht as guitar instrumental or a Christmas blues.
And very well that Chris Jones is not forgotten, still playing on on these
recordings, a plan which goes back for years in Stockfisch history. Tradition
and the courage of creative innovators – that’s Stockfisch’s gift to music
lovers – given as a trademark professionally and at this Christmas time given
from the heart. Christmas may be Christmas every year, it comes alive forever
new and warms the heart – this is what music does, and certainly music like
