Excellent A Cappella Singing for the Holidays
Richard J. Roberts | Indianapolis, IN USA | 12/05/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Primarily A Cappella is a label devoted - no surprise - to a cappella choral singing: vocal jazz, barbershop, national contest winners and local quartets alike. This CD is the label's first sampler designed to display the range of their offerings in holiday arrangements (their second, "A Voices Only Christmas," is very nearly as good as this one). The result is an eclectic, energetic, entertaining collection. There are excellent tracks from such vocal jazz dependables as the Swingle Singers, the Blenders (a smoooooth "First Noel), the Real Group, the Persuasions, the Nylons, and Rockapella (the bittersweet "Hold Out for Christmas"). Other standouts include the Haven Quartet's syncopated, ecstatic "Joy to the World," La Bande Magnetik's hilarious "Casse Noissettes," and especially the House Jack's thrilling "Saturnalia Smile," but the whole CD is a delight."
