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.
