A Bock & Blu Christmas was released in December 2004 in conjunction with the first annual Bock & Blu Christmas concert which benefits both the Brookfield High School Band as well as Operation E.L.F.(Embracing Lonely Families). Operation E.L.F. was established in 2003 by then Lieutenant Governor M. Jodi Rell as a sincere gesture of support to our military families who were separated during the holiday season due to deployment, and also potentially suffering tremendous financial hardship as a result of their call to active duty.
Mixing contemporary jazz, rock, folk and pop stylings into a unique blend, Bock & Blu's I Hide My Face Like This… is a culmination of two years of production work involving 21 musicians. The original album celebrates 19 years of songwriting collaboration between Gary Blu and Kenny Schiff.
