Carl Cole releases holiday CD at Media Play

In light of the pending holidays, one of Rockford’s most sought musicians, Carl Cole, is releasing a holiday CD with not only Christmas songs, but also secular holiday tunes. Carl Cole is joined by his vocalist wife Dianna Cole and his son Andrew Cole, who is in charge of the electronic drums and the mixing and mastering of the album.

Carl’s Carols includes such classic Christmas songs as “O Come, All Ye Faithful,” “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear,” and “Away in the Manger,” accented delicately by Dianna’s soft voice as she sings with her husband.

The CD progresses to more popular and modern tunes such as “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas,” and “Walking in a Winter Wonderland,” recorded in fresh arrangements.

Carl’s Carols rounds itself off with an instrumental medley by Carl at the piano and, finally, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”

Mr. C puts the soul back into Christmas with this latest work, and will be performing holiday songs at Media Play Friday Dec. 19, from 7 to 10 p.m. as a promotional endeavor. Copies of Carl’s Carols can be purchased for $10 at the event with proceeds benefiting Sound of Good News Youth CD and video projects.
