My name is Dick Pyatt. I live in New York City, the Big Apple, but don't hold that against me IDick Pyatt Former WNYC Program Director Releases Unique New Christmas CD Release Date: 2008-11-24 Category: Entertainment “A Christmas Gift” is a Collection of Christmas Standards and Songs of Faith FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE New York vocalist, actor , director Dick Pyatt and DPP Productions have released a new compact disc, entitled “A Christmas Gift,” that contains works by noted composers including Irving Berlin, Sammy Cahn, and Kurt Weill. But what is unique is the inclusion of Eli, Eli and Kol Nidre. Few popular music singers, if any, can bring a dramatic and emotional rendering of these two traditional songs of the Jewish faith. This is one of the highlights on the CD as they are seldom performed in a secular music environment. Included in this collection are traditional Christmas favorites such as Oh Christmas Tree, White Christmas, and Christmas Waltz. Expanding the spirit of Christmas to go beyond the usual commercial CD, Pyatt includes songs of deep faith such as I Believe, Ave Maria, and Bless This House. “I took time to carefully select songs that would be appropriate to the season and to the need for feelings that inspire and give deeper meaning to our lives.” I find it is difficult to locate new music for vocalists today that evoke the same quality and feelings as those of the masters,. said Pyatt. In this context, one of the delights included on the CD is composer Al Petrone’s A Christmas Gift recorded by Julius La Rosa among others . Petrone’s style fits in with the classic standards but with an unmistakable contemporary sound. Pyatt performs each song with exquisite tone and nuance with a wide vocal range, and an artistic awareness for the lyrical message and distinct need required for the variety of songs selected. His artistic style and rich baritone voice has been described by audiences as unique and a distinctly different sound in the popular music scene but reminiscent of the panorama of great vocalists that include the voices of Dick Haymes, Vic Damone, and of course, Frank Sinatra. The music is arranged and produced by the talented musician Robin Foreman. A native New Yorker splitting time in Florida, Pyatt , somewhat of a renaissance man, has been a favorite radio personality for over 20 years in New York City as producer and director of programming for WNYC-AM-FM radio and host of a weekly radio feature at WFAS in Westchester.. On stage, he has directed noted actresses Susan Strasberg and Ruth Warrick in classic drama. As a writer, he has published three books on health and medical advances. He has also been on the faculty of numerous colleges in New York including Pace University, Elizabeth Seton College and Iona College in New York teaching speech and media. ##### Contact Info: DICKPYATT.COM DPP Productions New York, 212-502-0322
