Classic Holiday Cabaret CDs: Andrea Marcovicci

My Christmas Song For You 

Andrea Marcovicci’s December stint at the Oak Room is a holiday tradition for many people.  So although she’s never done a Christmas show, a holiday CD from her — My Christmas Wish for You — makes perfect sense.

The tracks on My Christmas Wish for You are standards and a few obscurities filtered through Marcovicci’s specific cabaret sensibilities.  And Shelly Markham has arranged the selections with lush orchestrations for a large instrumental ensemble.  Marcovicci’s version of the big band classic Blue Champagne is my personal favorite, conjuring up images of a chic, sophisticated, slightly dishabille holiday interlude.
