From jazz greats to Tijuana Brass knockoffs, erstwhile Top 40 pop acts to stars of TV shows, the performers and songs that light up this off-trail Yuletide offering remind us that the swingin' '60s produced more great music than can ever be heard on commercial radio.

Paul Winter Solstice Concert
Sunday, Dec 22 • 9-11 pm
Public Radio 89.5-1

A holiday celebration on a spectacular scale - Music, dance and renewal of spirit at the great turning point of the year.

The Winter Solstice Celebration is a contemporary take on ancient solstice rituals, when people came together during the longest night of the year to celebrate the return of the sun, as the Earth begins its rotational cycle back towards summer. Now in its 33rd year, the performance at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the world's largest cathedral, is New York's favorite holiday alternative to The Nutcracker and Radio City Christmas.

This year's solstice promises to be a landmark in Paul Winter's tradition of interweaving diverse performers of the world. Joining the seven-time Grammy-winning Paul Winter Consort will be renowned African griot singer Abdoulaye Diabaté; dynamic vocalist Theresa Thomason; the 25 dancers and drummers of the Forces of Nature Dance Theatre; and the reunited Paul Winter Sextet, celebrating their new anthology , and the 50th anniversary of their historic jazz concert at the Kennedy White House.

The Consort musicians: Paul Winter, soprano sax; Paul McCandless, oboe and English horn; Eugene Friesen, cello; Paul Sullivan, keyboards; Jamey Haddad, drums; Eliot Wadopian, bass; and Tim Brumfield, pipe organ. The Sextet musicians: Paul Winter, alto sax; Warren Bernhardt, piano; Cecil McBee, bass; Marvin Stamm, trumpet; and Howard Johnson, baritone sax.
