Nuts for the Holidays
Internationally published arranger and multi-instrumentalist Scott Staidle has released a refreshing twist on holiday instrumentals. 'Nuts For The Holidays' is a journey through a multitude of musical styles ranging from rock to classical. 'Joy To The World' travels from the traditional to the 'Nashville' sound. 'Acid Plum Fairy' is an acidic interpretation of the Sugar Plum Fairy. 'Santa's Housetop' applies a 'rockin' housebeat' to Santa's favorite carols. 'Winter Indeed' expands on the luscious sound of Vivaldi's Four Seasons. 'Marche Caracteristiques' marches to a different drummer. 'Chinese Dance', the wild-n-crazy version. 'Coventry Carol' just wishes you a Merry Christmas. 'Corelli Goes Wild' is the uncensored rendition of his Christmas Concerto. 'Silent Nicht' is NOT your typical silent night. 'Trepak Rock' provides this nutcracker dance an opportunity to rock-n-roll. 'Icy Blues' is a classical/blues original inspired by a blizzard. 'Arabesque Danse' imagines Tchaikovsky as the fifth member of Led Zeppelin. All of the songs are written and/or arranged, recorded, engineered, mixed and produced by Scott Staidle. Violin, mandolin, electric violins, celloin, dulcimer, acoustic and electric guitars, bass, synthesizer, and percussion were performed by Scott Staidle.
