D.C. Anderson, one of Broadway and cabaret's most compelling performers, has gathered holiday songs by contemporary writers Jane Siberry, David Buskin and Lee Holdridge, Broadway composers Kander & Ebb, Lucy Simon & Susan Birkenhead, Mary Rodgers & Stephen Sondheim and Sondheim & Jule Styne, added a few traditional favorites and teamed with pianists Lem Jay Ignacio and Steven Landau, acoustic guitarists Roy Zimmerman and Steve Bargonetti and acoustic bass man Ritt Henn to create the Christmas release 'all is calm, all is bright' ! Songs receiving their premiere recording on this CD include Sondheim & Rodgers' 'Christmas Island at Christmas Time', Simon & Birkenhead's 'Heaven Can't Be Far' and Anderson and Landau's 'Hands'. From the calypso beat of 'Christmas Island at Christmas Time' to the laugh-out-loud funny 'UPS Bell Carol' ('Carol of the Bells' from the perspective of harried holiday UPS shipping department clerks), to the thought provoking 'The Rest of the Year', to the traditional 'Silent Night' , this LMLMusic release is both beautifully performed and delightfully entertaining!

"This CD is a must-have! From the smallest child to the biggest Scrooge, everyone will find a favorite song on this CD. D.C. Anderson captures the spirit of the holidays in a very unique way - traditional favorites, original compositions, parodies, and little-heard songs that will soon become your favorites. Each song is performed in a style that is all D.C.'s. Truly, a breath of Christmas fresh air (no pun intended)!"
New Sondheim song is wonderful! Beautiful voice.

"This is the most interesting, unique and satisfying holiday cd I've come across. I've always been a fan of D.C. Anderson's but this cd stands alone as a truly great piece of artistic expression. And that voice! I love the new Sondheim Christmas song that he recorded. The sticker on the cd said it is the first recording of the song ever. He's one of the great ones."
