Just in time for Christmas, The Frank Hailey-Eric Zukoski Trio has just put out holiday cheer in their jazz-piano rendition of Sleigh Ride. You might recognize the track from it having been covered by industry legends like Ella Fitzgerald, Mariah Carrey, Miley Cyrus, Tori Kelly, Meghan Trainor, and even the fabulous Gwen Stefani. And, this track is no less. For what can be amiss when you mix Christmas and Jazz? This piano instrumental is immutable in that it courses through every nerve of your body until all of them are ringing like bells on bobtails!

The instrumental has a dancing rhythm that is heightened by the rich sound quality. Add to this, the traipsing jazz notes that spread around like dollops of lights. Cymbals slide in between the dominant soprano keys while the bass notes follow loyally. It just lights up the whole of your insides and gets you ready for the jolly season. Its vibrant escapades and charming interludes make up for the lack of vocals.

A masterpiece if you ask me, the record is hearty and full of pep. Each melody reminds us of the miracles of music and the marvel of the season.

Available on Spotify, YouTube Music, Apple Music, and Jio Saavn!
