A Christmas Storybook: Christmas Music
Christmas Music. Remember when that was basically old standards by Bing Crosby with "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" thrown in for good measure? I am always on the search for an unusual "tweak" in Christmas music. Of course there is ELVIS, who is in a class by himself. Christmas Cocktails (a compilation by Brad Benedict) is one of my all time favorites. Oh -so-cool snippets of 50's and 60's influenced Christmas carols, Daddy-O. But when I really want to get the most bang for my buck in the Christmas cheer department it is time for Louis Armstrong. Who can't be happy listening to Satchmo? So alive and happy to making music, he delivers more of the same to Christmas.
