TREASURY OF JEWISH CHRISTMAS SONGS
A Cool Jazz Tribute to the Jewish Songwriters
"Jake Ehrenreich sings these songs with easy pop-jazz panache, a slightly husky tone and casual swing that more than once evoke a younger Tony Bennett."
George Kanzler Hot House Magazine December 2018
"Swings like a young Tony Bennett. Add Roger Kellaway and some solid jazzbos to the mix and you get this record that you‘d think is a one note joke but runs so much deeper into so much more." Chris Spector Midwest Record
“You will wish Christmas came more than once a year. It’s just wonderful!”
Alan & Marilyn Bergman Legendary Grammy/Oscar winning songwriters
“Jake Ehrenreich is a pleasant ringer for Tony Bennett and is ably supported by the trio of pianist Roger Kellaway…” Andrey Henkin The NYC Jazz Record
“A top class trio, with a singer whose voice has shades of Nat King Cole…” Ann Alex Bebop Spoken Here (England – Winner 2018 Parliamentary Jazz Awards)
"Ehrenreich's swinging delivery is reminiscent of a modern-day Tony Bennett - a little rough around the edges - but full of sincerity and informed through study of the material. This well-conceived album acts as both warm holiday fare and as a tribute to the fine songwriters.” Thomas Cunniffe jazzhistoryonline.com
"I can't think of a better Christmas present! Jake & Roger’s rendition truly brings the song to life." Johnny Mandel Legendary Grammy / Oscar Winning Songwriter
"This is a fine collection, well sung, and would be a welcome addition to any library of Christmas CDs". Joe Lang Jersey Jazz Magazine
|“The album is a cool jazz delight. Ehrenreich has a vocal style not dissimilar to Tony Bennett, while Kellaway has an incredibly delicate and deft touch on piano. If anyone wants to hear some laid back swing, cool jazz versions of Christmas classics then this is what you need.” Kev Rowland housofprog.com
A Jewish child of Holocaust Survivors who incongruously grew up loving Christmas music, Jake first explored this theme in his hit Broadway show A Jew Grows in Brooklyn, where the New York Times raved “…a beautiful medley of Christmas Songs written by Jewish composers. Mr. Ehrenreich has a strong pleasant voice…" Now Jake teams up with Legendary Jazz pianist Roger Kellaway and his trio for a concert full of great music, behind the scenes stories and great fun. A unique way to spend the holiday.
