Rick's second holiday release, Snowriding brings the warmth and joy of the season home to you again, featuring a winter-spirited original title track along with a unique mix of holiday classics re-arranged in his traditional jazz style. The crisp, lively swing of "Silver Bells," and Paul McCartney's "Wonderful Christmastime" is complimented by the warm, peaceful ballad renditions of "O Little Town of Bethlehem" and "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?" Comforting waltzes "Carol of the Bells" and "I Saw Three Ships" are balanced by the Latin-gospel grooves of "The First Noel" and "Joy to the World." His best recording yet, Gallagher has redefined holiday favorites, so bundle up, relax and enjoy the "snow ride."
