Winter Dreams for Christmas

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
Navajo flautist Carlos Nakai first collaborated with guitarist William Eaton on the haunting and panoramic album Carry the Gift. Here they turn their talents to reflective interpretations of traditional Christmas carols, with the self-penned "The First Snowfall" thrown in for good measure. In addition to guitar, William Eaton also plays lyre and harp-guitar all of which he makes which smoothly blend with Nakai's Native American flutes. The carols are used as a base for some liberal improvisation, with his birdlike trills and warbles evoking the open spaces of the southwestern deserts.

More introspective than most Christmas albums, Winter Dreams may inspire the listener to ponder the themes and dreams of the holiday season. ~ Backroads Music/Heartbeats

    A True Keepsake

    Nakai's and Eaton's interpretation of the traditional Christmas carols will become a keepsake for anyone who celebrates Christmas with its true spirit in their hearts. Nakai's flute captures the spiritual essence of the holiday, always trying to raise the listener's awareness of the optimism the holiday offers. Eaton's performance on the album is stunning, managing to avoid overpowering Nakai's flute with generally more powerful instruments and using fully the spaces and voids to be found in the carols' musical structures themselves. If you can take only one CD with you anywhere to listen to Christmas carols for any purpose, you can't go wrong bringing this one.
