When you want to swing the holidays, cabaret style, I can think of no better CD the This Christmas from Ann Hampton Callaway.
Not only does the album contain swinging standards filtered through Callaway’s thrilling vocal pyrotechnics, but it contains three terrific songs penned by Callaway herself. (The wonderful song God Bless My Family is available through MusicNotes.)
One warning — this CD was recently re-issued with new cover art. So careful about re-purchasing.
