John Erickson’s latest CD, A Feeling of Christmas, is a collection of Christmas carols and hymns. Part solo piano, part jazz trio, the album features local favorites Patrick Williams on bass and Tim Mulvenna on drums.

A Feeling of Christmas is also given a slight Celtic flavor on two tracks with Chicago bodhran player Mike Austin. Familiar songs like “Carol of the Bells,” “Gabriel’s Message” and “Silent Night” all carry the distinctive signature of Erickson who creates a whole new universe with his lush re- harmonization, extended melodies and subtle force. He turns traditionals into originals and lifts them beyond the holiday season.

A Feeling of Christmas is John’s third solo release.
