Product Description

Just released by Putumayo...so lovely. A collection of wonderfully peaceful, goregous Christmas music. This will be a new favorite, I promise you.

 

Mindy Smith opens the collection with gossamer guitar rhythms and lilting vocals on her original tune, "It Really Is (A Wonderful Life)." The album takes a jazzy turn with The Sugar Thieves’ swinging take on Eartha Kitt’s sassy classic, "Santa Baby," and Leon Redbone offers a twist of 1930’s New York jazz with "That Old Christmas Moon," featuring his signature syncopated Harlem stride piano cuts. She & Him, a duo featuring actress/singer Zooey Deschanel, take us back to the fireside with their gently swaying rendition of "The Christmas Waltz," before the tempo lifts again as the album moves into Emilie-Claire Barlow’s cheerfully bouncing interpretation of the wintertime favorite, "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" Charles Brown adds a dash of West Coast blues to the mix with his smooth, saxophone-infused classic, "Please Come Home for Christmas," followed by one of the most widely recorded Christmas standards of all time, "The Christmas Song," sung by jazz singer Stacey Kent. With her take on "I’ll Be Home for Christmas," Stephanie Davis evokes the universal holiday theme of going home for Christmas, if not in person, then at least in heart and spirit. Johnny Moore’s Three Blazers, led by Mari Jones, give the collection a taste of Christmas in the 1950s with their bluesy hit, "Merry Christmas Baby." Finally, Hem’s brings the album to a close with "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," as Sally Ellyson’s gentle vocals shepherd listeners off to dreamland amidst images of mistletoe, shining stars and flying reindeer.

For many, Acoustic Christmas will provide a chance to revisit some of their favorite Christmas songs interpreted by an impressive array of jazz, blues and contemporary singer-songwriters.
