"It's Beginning To Sound A Lot Like Christmas"
Released November 4, 2012
Shortly after calling Lancaster home, Andy began “cutting his teeth” on writing new musical arrangements; from jazz to latin to country to funk to R&B. Surrounded by many of his local musical idols, Andy gathered a band for a single-day live tracking session in fall 2012 at Progressive Studios in Elizabethtown to “read down” some ideas. 10 Christmas songs in 8 hours in 1 room. Each song a different genre; each one an experiment in writing and performing a new or unfamiliar style of music. The veteran musicians bring the music to life, capturing the spirit of Christmas and a variety of musical idioms seamlessly from track to track. “It’s Beginning To Sound A Lot Like Christmas” swings, jives, grooves, eases, rocks and burns through classic Christmas tunes with Mowatt’s unique spin.
Recorded live by Mike Dinse at Progressive Studios, Elizabethtown PA, September 9, 2012.
