Silent Night (StringTime Jazz)

“Silent Night” features a layering of textures arranged, recorded, and performed using midi jazz guitar and digital recording techniques. Nylon and electric guitars were then added “live” to create an engagingly fresh set of treatments to these classic holiday themes. “I like to combine the best elements of current technology with the traditional aspects of using real guitars. It’s the best of both world’s as you combine the craft of predetermined musical architecture in the midi world with true jazz guitar improvisation. I think the integrity of each concept is extremely valid and that comes through clearly on “Silent Night” — John Basile
