The Legendary Jazz Pianist & Vocalist William Green Debuts New Christmas EP in Time for the Holidays
"Christmas with You" was written, produced, composed and arranged by Green. Danielle Lewis, an up-and-coming singer, performed background vocals.
"My goal with this recording is to not only entertain families this holiday season, but to spread love and peace," he explains. "I hope that my fans get a sense of hope, love of friends and family, as they listen to these two songs," says Green. "The music was easy to write. The lyrics required me to reconnect to my childhood experiences during Christmas."
In addition to Green's brilliant song, "Christmas With You", Green puts his personal musical arrangement on "This Christmas", a remake of Donny Hathaway & Nadine McKinnor's mega hit. Delina Brooker, also an Atlanta up-and-coming singer, performed background vocals. "This Christmas" is the most popular contemporary soul and R&B song in the Christmas song repertoire,"
The music is sure to appeal to the entire family. Green's fans can order the singles from CD Baby (http://store.cdbaby.com/
Green, a full-time musician, composer, songwriter and producer, is a native of Chicago, but has made Atlanta his home. Celebrating 40 years in the music industry, the maestro has showcased his charismatic charm and keyboard mastery with audiences around the world (Japan, Europe, Africa), while performing nationally with acclaimed artists such as Boney James, Tom Brown, Earl Klugh, Mindi Abair, Peabo Bryson, Cameo, Valerie Simpson, Kenny Lattimore, Melba Moore, Jennifer Holiday, Jean Carne, the sons of Otis Redding (military tour), BB King All-Star Band and Curtis Mayfield. He also had the privilege of appearing with Susan Tedeschi as the opening act for the Rolling Stones; opened for Spyro Gyra and The Yellow Jackets. Green has performed at the Capital Jazz Festival and the Atlanta Jazz Festival. In addition, he was co-host of the 2010 Atlanta Jazz Festival Jam Session. Green has also served as a Guest Co-host and On Air Announcer, alongside Atlanta's Jazz WCLK 91.9 Radio Personality Riva Blue, soliciting contributions from the listeners for nearly two years.
"I pride myself on creating timeless music that can be shared with the world for a lifetime. It's important to me to create timeless music because of recognizing the lack of musical integrity that now exists in the music industry," says Green. He has written and produced for numerous artists.
Green's impressive artistry has afforded him the opportunity to write and produce four CDs: his debut CD, "Magic Dream" (2004); "Green Valley" (2006); "Music 4 Life" (2010) and "Mind Rush" (2018). The sophomore CD, "Green Valley", featured multi-Grammy, award-winning Jazz artist Boney James on the track, "Lakeshore Drive". Green released his fourth CD, "Mind Rush", this summer (Magic Dream Records).
