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!
