“This five-song EP is just the thing to brighten up any staid holiday gathering. These instrumentals percolate with Latin jazz-funk, bringing big-band juice and rhythmic punch to four yuletide classics and one original, the title track.” (Los Angeles Times, 3-star review out of 4 by Randy Lewis)

Press release:

A Very Funky Christmas infuses funk, 60s boogaloo, jazz and 70s disco into classic holiday songs. This collection surely will inspire you to boogie through the season and take your holiday joy to the next level. Featured is “A Very Funky Christmas,” a Redtenbacher’s Funkestra original track destined to be added to everyone’s holiday party mix.

A Very Funky Christmas was created in a very unique way on three different continents with the help of Skype, Elance and FTP servers. It all started in Turkey when the Swiss producer, Thomas Feurer, found himself heartily humming Christmas melodies into his laptop. A couple of emails later the Austrian bass artist, Stefan Redtenbacher, was laying down tracks in his London studio fabricating funky arrangements you would not usually associate with Christmas.
Thomas Feurer couldn’t wait to get home, to New York that is, where he would add more instruments including saxes, sleigh bells and a flexotone. The icing on the cake was a big bold brass section featuring Dutch trumpet player Albert Leusink and American trombonist Michael Davis. Many Skype and FTP exchanges later Thomas Feurer and Stefan Redtenbacher were so excited about their foolishly funky Christmas creations that they felt like sharing them with the whole world.

Discovered on the freelance website Elance, Bulgarian illustrator, Irina Pamyatnih, brilliantly designed an album cover for the release that perfectly reflects the sassy celebratory music you’ll only hear on A Very Funky Christmas.
