Spider Saloff’s Cool Yule is a collection of Holiday classics and a few rare gems presented in a fresh modern style that will please audiences of all ages. Saloff also includes some her own holiday stories about the songs and her own memories.
It is a lively and festive and hip twist on Christmas and holiday celebration!
Spider Saloff’s been heard around the world as the host/ star of the syndicated public radio series Words and Music, but for thousands the most familiar way to enjoy the jazz stylings of Spider Saloff has been through live performances. The Chicago –based jazz vocalist has won accolades around the world for her introspective approach to the genre, most profoundly through her one-woman tribute to George Gershwin, The Memory of All That, conceived with the blessing of the Gershwin estate and headlining the Gershwin Centennial in St. Petersburg, Russia. spidersaloff.com
Tommy Muellner is an internationally acclaimed Chicago jazz pianist and composer. He has received kudos from aficionados and statesmen throughout the jazz world for his piano acumen and creativity. He has an uncanny understanding of harmonic movement, improvisation and musical interplay. Neil Tesser, the nationally recognized jazz critic and other prestigious publications, sites Tommy as a “pianist and tune smith of stellar magnitude.” After performing at the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee, Mike Drew of the Milwaukee Sentinel Journal said, “Like the late keyboard master Bill Evans, Tom finds classic gems, and creates sophisticated lyric variations.” And this from Hammond organ master Joey DeFrancesco, “Tommy swings, grooves, is soulful, and in total command of his instrument, plus I love him, he’s one of my favorites!” tommujazz.com
