We are re-releasing A Vision Of Christmas, a project I recorded many years ago, which is still very near and dear to my heart. It features myself at a Steinway D concert grand piano, along with loads of synths and keyboards, which were then state of the art, and now referred to as vintage gear. Visions showcases many very familiar Christmas carols wrapped up in a very special sonic package which has withstood the test of time. Please enjoy the listen.
A Vision Of Christmas is available for purchase/download at the Official Ted Howe Store, or your favorite online music outlet. Happy Holidays! - Ted

Composed by jazz pianist, Herbie Hancock, in 1962, his single of the tune made the pop charts. It has been covered by over 200 artists. It was Herbie’s first attempt at composing for commercial purposes (It paid Herbie’s bills for over six years!). In 1973 Herbie reworked the tune, combining elements of funk, for his groundbreaking album, “Headhunter’s.”
