Best Christmas Music in a Decade

"Chuck Leavell is known mostly for his supurb work as pianist and keyboardist for the elite artists of the last three decades. Names like The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, The Black Crowes, Bluse Traveler, and so many others have inlisted his tallents. On this disc he not only plays with passion and fire, but the big surprise is how strong his vocals are. His voice ranges from R&B soulful on "Hey Santa" and "Even Santa Gets The Blues" to melodic soothing on the beautiful new standard that he penned, "Bethlehem". This is a MUST for those that don't have it in their collection. We just can't wait for the sequel!! rl"

"A blues, R&B and jazz-influenced Christmas CD doesn't come along often. Chuck Leavell's Christmas CD has its rough spots, but overall its a good effort and worth the money.The best and worst parts of this CD is Chuck himself. Chuck is an excellent arranger and keyboardist. The jazzy instrumental arrangements of Christmas classics shine - this ain't muzak! You can't help but sit up and take notice.The worst is Chuck the vocalist. He's never been strong vocally (re: Sea Level). He mangles Merry Christmas Baby, and needs fellow Stones-sidemate Lisa Fischer to rescue Please Come Home for Christmas. On the other hand, Chuck delivers on his self-penned Bethlehem, a new Christmas classic. He also hits the mark with Hey Santa. It's a fun song and Chuck has fun singing it.Buy this just to put something different in your Christmas CD collection."
