Album Review

Cardinal rule number one for introducing new holiday songs amidst a sea of newly arranged classics: Make them compelling! No doubt she hopes that listeners will slow dance to the title track of her first holiday offering, but, despite its sweet sentiment, it's one of the handful of bland tracks amidst many that are far more interesting. The most unique choice Lee Ann Womack makes is moving away from her comfy country roots and doing a traditional jazz/big band-flavored party for the season at hand. Her wry duet of "Baby It's Cold Outside" with Harry Connick, Jr. is fully of sultry cool and sassy personality — qualities the disc's other ballads could use more of. The medley of "Let It Snow/Winter Wonderland" is rendered in a classic '50s crooner fashion, with rising splashes of horn section complementing her lush vocals. That same tenderness serves her well on a sparse, folksy arrangement of "Silent Night," a mood she balances with sassy swingers like "The Man With the Bag." Even if there's some unevenness here, the disc in general lives up to its title concept.

Customer Reviews

No Country Twang Here

What makes this album great is the lack of "country" styling. While I love Lee Ann Womack, it's tough getting past the twang of "I Hope You Dance." A great buy with a fabulous rendition of "Baby It's Cold Outside," countered by the irrepressible Harry Connick, Jr.

I Just Like it

I like Lee Ann, I can't help it. I saw a early news show a few years back when this album was released and Lee Ann was performing the title track, which I find dreamy. Her voice is pure crystal and Lee Ann finds herself surronded here not by a country backbeat, but jazz and big band. She tackles the songs here with the ease of her country ballads. Christmas music is a departure from the norm, Lee Ann took a bigger direction away from her roots with this beautifully arranged and performed holiday offering. Let's just dispense with the critics and enjoy this album.

No country twang here folks, just smooth vocals

It's taken me awhile to warm up to Lee Ann Womack of "I hope you'll dance" fame. But I'm admittedly a fan now. This new Christmas CD from Ms. Womack is, in two words, timeless and smooth. No Country twang here, just beautiful Christmas music from one very talented artist.
