Chapman Stick® seasonal beauty Michael Kollwitz Solo Chapman Stick® – SANTA PLAYS THE STICK:  According to the liner notes for Michael’s album, even Mr. Claus is a Chapman Stick® player, who spends the whole summer vacation honing his skills on this most unique instrument.  Though the song in the video below didn’t make it onto this release, it will still give you a nice intimate view of Michael’s masterful playing…

…of course, even the elves gather round when Michael plays, and you’ll find him in plenty more video settings when you SUBSCRIBE to his YouTube channel… I did.

Michael’s playing on the splendid opener, “Away In A Manger“, will make this a CD you’ll want in your collection to treasure for all your seasons to come!

The soothing strings Michael melds in on one of my favorite Christmas carols, “The First Noel“, will bring oh-so-merry visions of the holidays back for you to enjoy over and over again.

It’s “full strings ahead” on “Joy To The World“; you can even hear the angels on this one!

Of the fifteen sonic celebrations of the season, I found Michael’s performance of “Deck The Halls” to be my personal favorite… I will tell you (right now) – you won’t hear a better rendition of this beautiful song, especially on Chapman Stick®.

I give Michael a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 for this splendid seasonal sound adventure… to get your very own copy of this collector’s item, visit Michael’s page for the CD and purchase it there.  To get more information on this high-talent player, go to Michael’s website.
