David Ian—a.k.a. Dave Ghazarian of Superchick renown—delivers a tasty assortment of holiday tunes on the appropriately titled Vintage Christmas. In contrast to the aggressive pop/rock of his regular group, Ian here elects for a jazz-trio approach, augmented by the vocals of Acacia Wulfing (of Tal & Acacia) and Andre Miguel Mayo. His elegant piano work—inviting comparisons to Vince Guaraldi and Bill Evans—lends the album a ‘50s-era hipster feel. Jon Estes’ melodic upright bass and Brian Fitch’s light but sturdy drums keep the rhythms flowing nicely. Wulfing shines with her caressing, Norah Jones–like vocals on “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.” Mayo’s easy-swinging delivery of “Let It Snow” and “Christmas Time with You” (a David Ian original) kindles memories of holiday recordings by the likes of Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole. Instrumentals like “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” give the band room to stretch out and solo in fine style. It’s performed with a smooth touch and plenty of heart.
Truly a Vintage Christmas
Just got this album (FINALLY!) today and I have to say it's amzing. The mood is perfect for a relaxing christmas. David's voice is amzing along with Acacia who really compliments him. This is the only album that can hold it's own against my usual "Charlie Brown Christmas" Album (it has the same feeling and style.) A new favorite of mine!
An instant classic
I never imagined I'd feel the need to review a Christmas album but this one is truly amazing. You can hear the influence of other classic holiday albums but they really manage to make it their own. The only downside is that the album is too short.
This album is truly the best thing to come along since the Charlie Brown Christmas album! It has a great retro feel and is perfect for playing in the background at your Christmas gathering with friends! Highly recommended!
