For the fourth consecutive year, contemporary jazz favorite, Brian Culbertson, is taking BRIAN CULBERTSON'S A SOULFUL CHRISTMAS to venues across the country. This year, Brian has added his good friend and chart-topping sax-man, Michael Lington. AirTran Airways is returning as the tour sponsor. The show will feature uplifting and soulful performances of holiday favorites and tunes from Brian's holiday album, A Soulful Christmas (in stores now)! In addition, Brian will play songs from his new DVD/CD combo, Live From The Inside. This special package will be in stores on November 10 and was recorded in Studio A at Capitol Records in Hollywood, CA.
"I had an idea to do a variety of small jazz clubs this year because I love being up close to the audience," states Culbertson. "Over the past couple years, we've been only doing the large venues so I wanted to change it up and do a totally different 'intimate' show. I'm also very excited to be reunited with Michael Lington who spent two years with my band a few years ago. We have great chemistry together on stage and I just love the way he plays. The Christmas season is one of my favorite times of year and I can't wait to get back on the road and spread some holiday cheer!"
