Hailing from Panama City, Florida saxophonist Chris
Godber has already four solo albums to his discography.
He started his career with Will You Be Mine?
(2007) followed by One Breath At A Time (2009),
My Offering (2011) and this year Where Are
On his albums he performs soprano, alto and tenor
saxophones in addition to the piano, keyboards, and
acoustic guitar, drum programming and what you heard
What Child Is This, a popular Christmas carol
written in 1865, starts the album emotionally
interpreted by Godber. Since Bill Crosby's version
I'll Be Home For Christmas became a holiday musical
tradition in the United States. Chris continues this
practice with his very own interpretations on soprano
sax and piano.
The uplifting I Love Christmas features
Lowell Hopper, soulful guitarist from Panama City,
Florida. Delightful is the interplay between saxophone
and chimes. Lowell has his place on the second part of
the song. Let It Snow, a song written by
lyricist Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne in July
1945, is nicely covered. Only the brass insertion is
The Christmas carol Angels We Heave Heard On High
is recorded in a traditional way. The Christmas Song
presents heartfelt singer Dony Adair sharing the song
with saxophonist Chris Godber. A sentimental song softly
melting like chocolate ice cream.
Where Are You Christmas known by country singer
Faith Hill is reacted cautiously by Chris Godber on
soprano sax. Mary Did You Know impresses with
its finely chiseled implementation by acoustic guitar
and soprano sax.
The traditional classical English carol The First
Noel is spiced with a modern rhythm. In contrast to
the previous music songs Chris ventures with Feliz
Navidad into the zone of Latin Jazz presenting a
heightened sense of well-being.
Chris Godber offers with Where Are You Christmas
an album of Christmas song in a more traditional way.
This album is for those who want to hear no discord in
the gift giving special.
