Julie and I decided to put a bonus track on the album and wanted to create a seasonal Christmas song something in the vein of the great jazz standards from the 1940's. Of course, my natural proclivity is to lean toward a bossa groove, so Home For Christmas feels a bit more like the late 1950's, early 1960's and Stan Getz and Astrid Gilberto. Paul lays down a rock steady beat, and the guitar solo flows just right. And for anyone wondering about the line regarding watching the roaring fire on our TV, back in the 1960s and 70s, WPIX channel 11 in New York used to cancel all programming on Christmas Day and show a yule log in the fireplace all day. In so many New York homes, where there were no fireplaces, they decorated around the TV as though it was the mantle piece around the fireplace.
