Clarence Clemons Christmas Album Available Now
The late sax player has a Christmas album available now and the big man really poured himself into the project.
The title track for the EP features Clarence on lead vocal and The Christmas Song got the royal saxophone treatment and you’ll find an extended version of it on the record, too.
Dennis Bourke and Jim Nuzzo produced the album and were on hand for the initial recording sessions for the album, which took place in 1981. They say that Clarence really got into character for the record and wore a Santa suit to get him into the Christmas spirit. The pair called the album Clarence’s “parting gift to us all” and they’re urging fans to “open up your heart and listen to The Big Man say Merry Christmas to the world.”
