Zwei Weihnachtslieder von Clarence Clemons

Am 18. November 2011 findet in der „Wonder Bar“ in Asbury Park, NJ eine Releaseparty statt. Die „Nick Clemons Band“ stellt zwei Weihnachtslieder vor, die der E Street Band Saxophonist Clarence Clemons im Jahre 1981 eingespielt hat. Dabei handelt es sich um „There’s Still Christmas“ – einem Song aus der Feder von Stevie Betts und Dennis Bourke – sowie dem Instrumental „The Christmas Song“.

Nachricht der Produzenten Dennis Bourke und Jim Nuzzo:

Back in 1981, we were blessed to have the opportunity to share some time with Clarence and record these marvelous Christmas tunes. He poured himself into the project, wearing Santa gear and really capturing the essence of the season. We had hoped that these recordings would have graced the airways back in ‘81 but we were too late approaching the record labels that year. Subsequently Clarence’s career skyrocketed with the Red Bank Rockers, a hit song with Jackson Browne, and of course his tremendous run with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. With his passing in June 2011, we were all saddened to lose this American rock icon. One of the beauties of recorded music is its eternal power to play on long after the artist is physically gone. Clarence has a parting Christmas gift to us all with these soon to be holiday classics. Open up your hearts and listen to the “Big Man” say Merry Christmas to the world.
