    "Eric and his crew did a masterful job of painting the walls to perfection and making sure that our chestnut woodwork was protected. He oversaw the refinishing of our living room and dining room floor that now glows. He fixed all sorts of things that got our beautiful home ready for sale. All of this Eric did with heart!"

  • Great Holiday Music

    [caption id="attachment_5202" align="alignleft" width="391" caption="Holiday Music"]Music[/caption]

    Sick of the usual Christmas songs you hear every year? Want to spice it up and hear a new track? Take a look at some of these Holiday music ideas courtesy of The New York Times gift ideas:

    Too often holiday music is about comfort: familiar melodies, familiar sentiments, familiar styles. And for some that may well be enough: never underestimate the power of the reliable. But so much great music comes from artists who understand that the holiday season is just another topic — it can inspire reverence and jubilation, of course, but also self-doubt, skepticism, comedy, fear, resentment and so much more. Here, the pop and jazz critics of The New York Times highlight the best of the traditional, the best of the progressive and some others with room to grow.

    GERI ALLEN: ‘A CHILD IS BORN’ The rare Christmas record that transcends background music, nostalgia or pure business, this first Christmas album by the jazz pianist Geri Allen is serious and thoughtful. She rearranges songs like “We Three Kings” and “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear” for solo piano and other instruments including celesta and Farfisa organ, darkening them into unanswerable questions; in her hands, they sound influenced by late Coltrane, late-1960s Miles Davis and gospel music. She also weaves in under-a-minute snippets of multitracked improvisations and recorded segments of singing by the Gee’s Bend Quilters Collective, the Alabaman craftswomen.
