Can Jew's play?
My new favorite is Mary Chapin Carpenter's absolutely fantastic "12 Songs of Christmas". I play it all year round.
My old favorite is the Mobile Fidelity LP of "A Jolly Christmas With Frank Sinatra"
Now when we get to Chanukah music I've got the inside track for you. Well if I don't get deported first.
Thanks for the Ramsey Lewis Trio post. I just discovered his stuff this year but didn't know of the one you noted. Off to the download sites!
I abhor using text shorthand but, LMAO!
I think you officially put me in the spirit.
I was specific in stating "holiday" music to avoid being specific about anyone's affiliations. This thread invites and welcomes everyone's music that gets them in the spirit of enjoying family gatherings and friends regardless of such.
Bring on the Chanukah choices forthwith!
I have about 40 discs of all different types, but the absolute musts:
Glenn Campbell That Christmas Feeling
The Carpenters The 2 disc set
Nat King Cole The Christmas Song
Randy Travis Old Time Christmas
Anything by Johnny Mathis, Andy Williams or Perry Como.
I like to mix in choral, orchestral, motown and jazz as well.
I love Christmas music!
OK, I'm always there for you. One of my favorite Channukah albums is old:
The Klezmer Conservatory, "Oy Channukah".
and a new Channukah song:
Matisyahu, "Miracle (the Channukah Song"
And though it's not quite Channukah music per se:
"Cannonball Adderly's Fiddler on the Roof"
and African-American folk baritone and political activist Paul Robeson singing in Yiddish, "Zot Nit Keynmol"
A happy holiday to all!
