Little Gifts is the holiday EP release of emerging saxophonist, composer, and educator Stephen Philip Harvey. This EP’s namesake is the original ballad included in the track listing that celebrates the little gifts of the holiday season: family, friends, and the fuzzy feeling you get when you spend time with the people you love.
The EP features three familiar holiday tunes in three different formats performed by chord-less trio. From mixed meter backbeat, contemporary waltz, and second line, this EP reimagines these tunes; adding both levity and gravity to opportune vehicles for improvisation. With a lighthearted air and open instrumentation, this collection acts as a solid entry for both seasonal holiday jazz listeners and avid jazz fans.
Little Gifts is Harvey’s debut trio release, furthering his ensemble formats under his leadership. This release comes as his trio, SPH+2, is set to release their debut LP in March of 2024. The ensemble features Harvey on tenor & soprano saxophones, Max Murray on bass, and Jordon Stanley on drums.
