Jeffrey Osborne is often compared to R&B contemporaries Luther Vandross and James Ingram. But Something Warm for Christmas shows how much he has in common with the great Johnny Mathis, who has recorded a few Christmas albums of his own through the years. With George Duke producing and playing keyboards on half the tracks, there's more of a smooth-jazz tint here than Mathis ever used. And Osborne brings more seasonal obscurities to this recording, including an original he cowrote titled "Just a Little Snow." With its kiddie chorus and lament about spending the holidays in a sunny locale, the latter may not match "White Christmas" as a musical statement, but it's not bad, either. Nevertheless, Osborne is best when sticking to traditional tunes, be it a soothing take on "The Christmas Song" or a glorious "Angels We Have Heard on High." --Bill Holdship

"Osborne shares the gift of his voice on this well crafted Christmas collection. His vocals are strong, soulful and articulate and every song expresses a distinct lyrical and vocal beauty which will quickly warm your heart and soul.
This collection gets you in the spirit of the season from track one, Christmas Time is Here. Another one of the highlights is an Osborne original called Just A Little Snow. Osborne's articulate lyrics on this track create a vivid imagery which quickly elevates your mood and spirit to the holiday season.
This is beautiful, relaxing Christmas music to enjoy with your loved ones by the fireside, during dinner, or snuggled with your spouse or lover.
