Missed Music

Music you didn’t know you needed…until now.

Merry Christmas!

I thought I was going to get around to a post today, but it just didn’t come together. I was going to recommend a couple Christmas albums: Vice Guaraldi’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas” because this is simply the single finest Christmas album ever made. Really. You probably know it. If you don’t, do yourself a big favor and go get it immediately. Vince Guaraldi is perhaps my favorite jazz artist and this album is fantastic. The other was to be “Merry Mixmas.” This is a series of classic Christmas songs by artists like Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, Dean Martin, etc. that have been completely regrooved with updated percussion and instrumentation. It’s fantastic. Sadly, I didn’t wind up with time to give you details and specific recommendations, but both are wonderful discs and you will definitely enjoy them both.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday, whether you celebrate Christmas or not. I’ll be back on Monday.
