Tori Amos Midwinter Graces CD & DVD
After nearly two decades writing and recording some of her generationís most
emotionally powerful music, Tori Amos releases her first seasonal album,
Midwinter Graces. A follow up to Toriís critically acclaimed studio album,
Abnormally Attracted to Sin, Midwinter Graces finds Tori reworking and expanding
on classic carols as well as developing some of her very own seasonal tracks.
Midwinter Graces is an album that has been in the making for the past 40 years.
Raised in the Baltimore area under the watchful eye of her Methodist minister
father, Tori grew up playing holiday carols at Sunday services and Christmas Day
celebrations in her fatherís church. These were the songs that gave a young Tori
her first taste of music, and now almost 40 years later Tori gets her own chance
to reimagine classics like "What Child, Nowell" and "Star of Wonder." Tori also
adds her own bittersweet bliss to the season with originally tracks like "Pink
and Glitter" and "Our New Year."
For Midwinter Graces, Amos has again teamed up with long time collaborators Matt
Chamberlain on drums, Jon Evans on bass, and Mac Aladdin on guitars. Tori has
enlisted the help of a Big Band and an Orchestra with stunning John Philip
Shenale arrangements to create Toriís new seasonal classics.
Tori Amos manages to create an album for the holidays that can also stand on its
own at any other time of the year.
The Deluxe package includes 2 bonus tracks as well as a Bonus DVD featuring Tori
talking about the inspiration and making of Midwinter Graces.
