Legendary smooth jazz trumpet player Sam Hankins and award-winning producer and multi-instrumentalist David McLorren get into the Christmas spirit with Rejoice. The new EP has 3 Christmas tracks, just in time for the holidays.
This new smooth jazz Christmas EP features three well-known Christmas classics, namely: “Joy to the World”, “Oh Come All Ye Faithful” and “We Three Kings”. Just in time to provide us with some Christmas cheer and joy, Sam Hankins and David McLorren have officially released the Rejoice Smooth Christmas EP, whose three tracks were also featured in a 2015 Christmas project of theirs, called Joyous Celebration. The project included all the previously mentioned songs, as well as some other Christmas classics, like “Jingle Bells” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”.
The EP combines the well-known ethereal sounds from David McLorren with Sam Hankins signature smooth jazz trumpet runs. If you ever wanted to hear some great smooth jazz during the Christmas holidays, this is the album for you.
Sam thought this was the perfect time to reconnect with his listeners by spreading some joy, as so many have been affected by the 2020 pandemic. In coordination with this initiative, Sam will be releasing a video of “Oh Come Ye Faithful” on YouTube as well as the Christmas EP, which will be available on all digital platforms.
