12 Days of Christmas - Joyous Holiday Lounge

12 Days of Christmas - Joyous Holiday Lounge

Playing tracks by

Frank Sinatra, Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass, Sonya Kitchell, Jackopierce, The Digital Age and more.

Honestly, I wasn't planning to do a Christmas show this year, until I realized how much new music there is for the season ... hopefully, enough to lure us all away from that automatic reaction: Oh good grief, again!?!

I’m easing you in with some classics (Sinatra, Herb Alpert) and then turning the spotlight on new creations & new singers putting their spin on the classics ... In fact, Christmas music is the singer's equivalent of Hamlet for an actor; they need to see what they can bring to these tunes that's new.

Notable among the secular and spiritual offerings, kudos to Sarah McLachlan for a song that reminds us of those friends whose Christmas will not include their loved ones, and to Angel Snow for her reading of O Holy Night, reminding this bitter world that “His law is love, and his gospel is peace.” And, of course, I could not resist including my all-time favorite version of Silent Night from Mahalia Jackson....

Peace to you and yours.
