Synopsis

Amazon.com
Charles Brown is responsible for one of the bluesiest Christmas tunes ever, "Please Come Home for Christmas." Countless individuals and groups have covered this heartbreak classic because it so readily embraces the theme of being home for the holidays with loved ones. Brown's golden hit is just one of the highlights on his 1994 Christmas album, along with "Merry Christmas, Baby," a blues tune almost as popular as "Please Come Home for Christmas." Some of the newer tunes he's written for this record are almost as savory, including "Christmas Comes but Once a Year," a rockin' little number featuring the legendary Johnny Otis on vibes; the jazzy, six-minute-plus meditation on the holiday "A Song for Christmas"; and a couple of forthright love songs, not to mention "Christmas in Heaven" and "Bringing In a Brand New Year." --Martin Keller

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This disc and it`s tracks compare closely to that first all day snowfall with big flakes, the kind you rush outside to try and catch with your tongue. Mr. Brown crafts Christmas Yuletides in the cool smooth blues style, timeless and classy.After 5o years of playing, his music flows freely between jazz,blues,and r&b with honesty and orignality that sets mastercraftsmen apart. Take the biggest flake " A Song For Christmas" at 6:15 in length the track was not intended for any radio airplay, rather as a testimonial from artist to listener tout`n the best virtues of the season.So when ya get a case of the blahs, pour youself a hot toddy, play this disc, and let Charles melt the worries away.Merrily Mix ~ 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,and 11 ~ no bahhumbugs here. Post Script: This is a National Yuletide Treasure, cherish it`s insight please.***buyit*saveit*shareit*giveit*donateit to the local library***"
