Ron Di Salvio's CD The Second Twenty-Four Days of Christmas The Second Twenty-Four Days of Christmas
This music signals the themes of a miraculous birth and faith, and juxtaposes human artistic aspiration with divine inspiration. These arrangements honor the contribution of both the classical and carol composer and then adds something new; the modulation of a new voice encountering this music and its meaning and then transcending it.

It was an early cherry blossom filled spring afternoon in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the year was 2006. The venue was The Gilmore International Keyboard Festival’s Afternoon Concert Series at the Civic Theatre. On stage sat Jimmy Cobb behind his drums, three amazing horn players; Derrick Gardner, Rob Smith and Pat Terbrack held trumpet, tenor and alto saxophones respectively in their hands. A young, fresh-out-of-Julliard, energetic upright bassist, Matt Heredia stood tall as I moved away from the Steinway concert grand piano toward the microphone.
