Sheila Landis / Rick Matle

Christmas Time is Here

SheLan Records 2017. SL1025

All of your traditional popular holiday favorites are tucked under the tree on compilation CD. However, you'll also find some lesser-known gems here including Louis Armstrong's swinging "Christmas Night in Harlem", Mary Chapin Carpenter's heartbreakingly tender waltz "Bells are Ringing", the jaunty "Man with the Bag" and even the up-to-no-good "Back Door Santa". All are given the hip Landis/Matle treatment here in the esteemed company of the late great George "Sax" Benson, Flint-area bassist Nick Calandro, drummer Bob Harsen, impeccable pianist Cliff Monear and drummer Karen Tomalis. Makes a great gift!
