[ Putumayo World Music / CD ]
Release Date: Friday 1 November 2013
Classic and contemporary Christmas songs recorded by leading North American singer-songwriters and jazz and blues musicians help bring the holiday season alive. Christmas music tends to feature familiar melodies with relatively simple arrangements and a timeless quality that transcends generations. Many of the artists on this collection are singer-songwriters more accustomed to recording their own songs. But each has managed to capture a universal holiday spirit with new takes on old standards, or with new songs likely to become holiday classics in their own right. These songs will provide merry accompaniment to everyone's Christmas celebration.
