public housing facilities and public schools across the five boroughs of
New York City to provide gifts to children and teens during the
holidays. New York Cares is the largest volunteer network in New York
City and is a network affiliate of Points of Light, the
world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service, which was
founded by Former President George H.W. Bush in 1990.

“The holiday season is all about family, friends and the community. As we celebrate this time of year with A Jazzy Little Christmas,
we wanted to support an organization that makes a difference in
people’s lives. We’ve decided to donate a portion of proceeds from this
project, which was recorded in New York City, to New York Cares’ Winter
Wishes program. New York Cares is an affiliate of the incredible global
organization Points of Light,” expressed Haase.
Ernie Haase + Signature Sound recorded A Jazzy Little Christmas
in New York City with Tony Bennett’s former musical director and
pianist Billy Stritch, award-winning producer Wayne Haun and some of New
York’s finest musicians. Along with holiday classics and sacred
seasonal songs, the project also features the Haase original “Christmas
in Manhattan,” described as “a modern-day ‘Silver Bells’ of sorts (Hallels).” The
world-renowned quartet recently returned to New York City for a
performance of songs from the new album at the legendary jazz venue
A Jazzy Little Christmas debuted at No. 1 on Soundscan’s Christian Seasonal Sales chart and Southern Gospel Sales chart, Top 10 on Billboard’s Jazz Albums chart and Traditional Jazz Albums chart and No. 20 on Billboard’s
