You'll definitely bring some tropical warmth into a chilly holiday season with this great collection of music from around the Caribbean. Wind your waist to the calypso sound of Lord Nelson and 15- year-old Soca sensation Machel. From Haiti come Lionel Benjamin and Claudette et Ti Pierre with songs of Kreole Noel. Jamaican Reggae rocks it in a roots dub style with Jacob Miller, Ray I, and Carleen Davis asking the question, "Santa Claus, do you ever come to the ghetto?" Salsa spices up the dance with Puerto Rico's El Gran Combo doing a "Christmas Serenade." Silky smooth zouk sounds from the Antilles by Eddy Gustave and an all-star band help to ease the holiday crush. And from the Bahamas, in a category all his own, the grumbling and growling Joseph Spence adds the ribbon and bow to top off this batch of holiday treats. --Jeff Grubb

You've Gotta Get This One!

"This CD is really special. A great collection of Christmas songs with that unique Caribbean flavour for a real departure from the usual North American/European classics. All different moods from ballads to exuberant dance-ables and mellow jazzy stuff, too. All Caribbean cultures are represented here with new and old songs. The liner notes alone are worth the price of the CD! In addition to the lyrics are factual notes about each song explaining the cultural and historical aspects -- I learned a lot just from reading them! And Machel's Soca Santa is now an absolute staple in our house every Christmas. You can't not dance to it and my nieces in Boston play it all year 'round! Give yourself a great gift and buy this CD!"
