Product Notes

"Do You Know Why there's Joy at Christmas?" / Special Thanks / And A Saxophone Tribute To My Father, Ray Oberschulte Excitement and Joy are in the air! Why? To celebrate the birth of God's Son, the Christ child! Homes, streets, and shopping malls are brightly lit with twinkling lights and trees decorated with many colored ornaments. Carolers sing beloved traditional songs of the season while bells ring out as shoppers scurry to the next store, in search of a treasure to gladden the heart of someone special. Holiday meals are shared with families and friends. Many gather in churches on that Eve and again on that Day to worship God. People are sometimes more spirited, considerate, and generous during the Christmas season. I recall the scent of fresh pine in our home from our Christmas tree and the anticipation of turning on the lights in the evening. My Mother framed large, multi-colored bulbs with foil reflectors which further enhanced their aura. The glow of the lights on the tree brought wondrous warmth into the living room, stirring my imagination to realize there was more wonder still to be discovered in the life I was living. Yes, on what seemed to be an ordinary day, I discovered the Wonder of wonders when the risen Christ of Christmas revealed Himself to me. What I came to know was the "JOY OF CHRISTMAS"! This album is dedicated to the One who brought true JOY to my life and keeps on supplying it -- my Savior, The Lord Jesus Christ. SPECIAL THANKS: Special Thanks goes out to my cousins, Paul (we call him Buddy) and Vera Lempio, in Kihei, Maui, Hawaii, who were the inspiration to produce this CD as well as part-producers. Thanks also to Don Bosco, who worked long hours with me in the studio and is to be commended for his technical skills and delightful, patient disposition. Thanks as well to Jeannine O'Neal who brought a special touch of rythym and sync with her arrangement of 'Do You Know Why There's Joy at Christmas?' Also to Phil and Sharon Fetterman -- for Phil's background vocals with Jeannine and for both Phil and Sharon's input on the bridge of the song. Thank you too, to my brother-in-law, Paul Wesling of Wesling Associates, who tirelessly has assisted me with my IT issues and initial website design. Everyone should have an engineer in the family! Thanks so much, Paul, for your care and concern for everyone of us. A SAXOPHONE TRIBUTE TO MY FATHER, RAY OBERSCHULTE (PLAYED BY JEANNINE O'NEAL) One Christmas, my Mom and Dad visited me in California from their home in Zug, Switzerland. I asked Dad to accompany me on a Christmas song and even though he hadn't touched his sax in years, he agreed to do it. Glen Weberg accompanied on the piano and a cassette tape recording was made of that ensemble and song. The years were not kind to the cassette tape, so Jeannine O'Neal played Dad's saxophone part as he did and the song has become a family treasure, 'I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day / Our Sacrifice of Praise' Medley. Dad is in heaven now but lives powerfully in our hearts and in my music. This one's for you, Dad!
