Every Friday night we smooth our way into the weekend with music, the universal language. These selections demonstrate that despite what is being passed off as art today, there is plenty of really good music available. Come along and enjoy.
For the past few years we’ve highlighted new Christmas albums at the beginning of the season. We’ve dug into Santa’s bag and found some really good ones to share this week.
We start with one of the most popular saxophonists in the business. Dave Koz is joined by guitarist Peter White, pianist David Benoit, and trumpeter Rick Braun.
He’s 82 and he just keeps going.
It’s been 49 years since Herb Alpert’s first (and last) Christmas Album.
In 2017 he brought along his trumpet with a 45-piece orchestra, a 10-piece rhythm section and a 32-member choir.
Now here’s an interesting combination.
BTW, Van Dyke has Alpert beat. He’s 91.
The above is available on iTUNES, but Jane Lynch does have an entire new Christmas album out.
Our next performers, Voctave is an a cappella group of singers from the Central Florida area. Members of the group have performed all over the world with multiple artists and in countless venues. Voctave was formed in 2015 and has been recording and performing all over the country.
That’s it for this week.
Have a great weekend.
Go out and buy a new CD!
Elvis has had two very successful releases where his vocals are combined with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. So a Christmas version comes as no surprise.
So very cool.
Oh oh. Did I just hear someone yell “Take it off Elvis!”
