I wanted to capture the feeling and celebration of the holidays and that spirit of December
Leonard Bernstein conducting New York Philharmonic
Featuring an organic folk-rock sound reminiscent of the band’s mid to late 1970s incarnations, the album mixes new material, re-recordings of Jethro Tull’s own suitably themed material and arrangements of traditional Christmas music.
The Sounding Joy is a spirited collection of folk carols drawn from Ruth Crawford Seeger’s 1953 songbook American Folk Songs for Christmas.
