Classic Holiday Cabaret CDs: Karen Mason

Christmas! Pic-7KDid you know We Three Kings is a torch song?  Well it is when Karen Mason sings it.  Her CD, Christmas! Christmas! Christmas!  is probably the first holiday CD I play every year (and the only holiday CD I play occasionally throught he year).  It’s a live recording of a holiday concert by Mason, a tradition on the New York cabaret scene.

This is the holidays with a Broadway belt.  And Mason goes from the joyous to the hysterical to the heartbreaking, to the heartfelt.  Especially wonderful are three bits of special material penned by the late, great Brian Lasser for Mason.  And Chris Denny provides amazing musical support for the many moods of Mason.
