Soothing Instrumentals of Christmas Favorites
This album is great for playing at the end of a good Christmas party, when the guests are mellow and facing the prospect of going out into the cold night. It makes you want to linger, have one more glass of wine or cup of eggnog, and tell someone you really love them. It's that kind of vibe.
The music is mostly piano, but played with subtlety and gentleness, without being immature or amateur. I recommend this album to people who are tired of the constant upbeat of holiday music, and want something to contrast with all the drums and pipes ... something to settle into a chair with, and think of people not present, of years past, and of what may be ahead.
A very listenable album, highly recommended! My only wish is that there were light vocals on some of the songs, but that's probably asking too much, and might ruin the soothing sounds that don't ask anything of you, except that you sink into the holidays and find peace among the bright lights and gifts and celebrations.
