Holiday Music Reimagined: Jon O'Bergh's New Album "10 Shades Of Christmas"


Sign in to view read count
Pianist Jon O’Bergh has released a new holiday album, 10 Shades of Christmas, that offers compelling interpretations of some of the world’s favorite Christmas carols, including “The Twelve Days of Christmas," “Deck The Halls," “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," and “The First Noel."

Jon’s usual cyber jazz sound glides between traditional and contemporary styles reminiscent of pianists Dave Brubeck, Vince Guaraldi, and Tori Amos, to name a few. Although his signature sound that fans have come to love remains throughout each track, he introduces new arrangements accompanied by strings, horns, atmospheric sounds, and acoustic guitars.

Producer Andre Akinyele (Gemini Soul) helped Jon shape a collection of holiday-themed songs that stand on their own musically, sonically and, if you close your eyes, even visually. Jon is accompanied by Andre Akinyele (acoustic guitar, bass, drums, electric guitar), Earl Jones (percussion), The Nu Jazz Horns (horns), and Holmes Run Orchestra (cello, viola, and violin). 10 Shades of Christmas intertwines a style unto its own producing an enchanted holiday masterpiece that just might become one of your favorite holiday albums for years to come.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
