Getting ready for Hanukkah

In preparation for Hanukkah, I recorded a quick demo of “Hanukkah Light,” my contribution to the American Hanukkah repertoire.

I was inspired to write this in 2009, after reading that Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah wrote a Hanukkah song, in collaboration with Jeffrey Goldberg from The Atlantic. I thought, if a Mormon senator can write a Hanukkah song, then certainly a Jewish jazz pianist can write one as well.

The result was Hanukkah Light; the lead sheet is available on the Original Music page, and you can find the recording over at Soundcloud (and in the sidebar of this page).

As a reminder, Hanukkah starts on December 20. Enjoy!
