The upcoming holiday celebrations need the perfect festive soundtrack – and #1 Billboard charting saxophonist Michael J Thomas and Grammy nominated vocalist Maysa are ready to start the party! Penned by Thomas and Maysa and produced by Thomas, Raymond Darius Jackson, Trammell Starks and Carl Griffin, “It’s Christmas” is 2021’s answer to Donny Hathaway’s timeless and much covered “This Christmas.” It’s a burst of joyful, sensual R&B/jazz funk that soulfully captures every aspect of the season – the great anticipation, the spirited gatherings, the love behind the gifts exchanged, the boughs of holly, the fireplace and the hot cocoa, with Santa fully on board. These bright, swirling images and emotions are brought home to all our hearts via Maysa’s incomparable vocals. The project breaks ground in the contemporary/smooth jazz genre as the first new original recording to utilize and be mixed with the revolutionary immersive Dolby Atmos technology. Its sonic design expands on existing surround sound systems by adding height channels, allowing sounds to be interpreted as three-dimensional objects.
