From jazzed up Christmas carols to rocking classics, these albums are perfect to set your holiday mood
The Christmas season is officially here. Across the US and Europe and throughout the world, inexplicable pine trees are being set up with sparkling lights, a big jolly man is gearing up for rounds of presents (the 6th of December for many in Europe, the 25th in the US), and people are preparing their ears for the endless refrain of Christmas radio melodies. That means if your projects don’t have that Christmas spice sprinkled in, you might be missing out on some audience – or you might confuse them.
Here are our top 5 albums for the holiday season. So be sure to check them out. New around here? Experiment with our unique app where you can control the length and the mix of the track and watch it automatically edit the piece for you, so that it will fit perfectly into your project.
With ten lively piano interpretations of the most beloved Christmas songs, this jazzy lounge-flavored album truly reflects the spirit and pleasure of the holiday season. Though updated with improvisations and rhythms at times, the tunes remain loyal to the lovely melodies that invoke nostalgia and happiness during the most delightful time of year. These adaptive tracks work well as a background for almost any festive setting. Two of the tracks, “Jingle Bells” and “We with You a Merry Christmas”, also feature the hands being mixed separately, so you can use just one of the hands if you’d like, or mix them to a more preferable ratio.
This Christmas album captures all the pleasure, nostalgia, and beauty of the season. It is a collection of carols, cinematic arrangements, and joyful tunes that is intended to serve as all of the musical material for a Christmas film. This adaptive assortment is ideal for anything from quiet rural sleigh trips to hectic large city shopping sprees. And using the app, you can create any number of refrains and reprises that you might need to sprinkle through your project.
