Mark Bovee's It's For You He Came is a jazz trio Christmas CD featuring Drummer Cafe owner / founder Bart Elliott on drums and percussion. Bart uses his vintage GRETSCH (c.1968) Progressive Jazz kit, Sabian HH cymbals, LP Congas & Bongos, Irish Bodhran and assorted percussion toys ... including Sleigh Bells of course.
Mark Bovee on piano, George Anderson on bass and Bart Elliott on drums/percussion ... all of the rhythm tracks were first or second takes, recorded simultaneously on the same sound stage. No ProTools tracking or editting. Several cuts feature jazz vocalist Christi Bovee with the trio, and there's also several solo piano pieces.
You can purchase the CD directly from Bart, through the Drummer Cafe, for only $10.95.
