Synopsis

Amazon.com
Cohesiveness is what separates this all-star Christmas release from the others. During the last four years, Dave Koz, vocalist Brenda Russell, pianist David Benoit, guitarist Peter White, and trumpeter Rick Braun have hit the road spreading holiday cheer among the smooth-jazz masses and their collaborative ease is palpable throughout these 14 tracks. Benoit is featured on "Hark the Herald Angels Sing," while Koz adds one of his best solos. Braun has the spotlight on "Little Drummer Boy," where Benoit shines too, and White highlights "Silent Night." All five players are credited for arrangements on most tracks, the craftiest of which is the '50's doo-wop of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," where you can almost hear the Drifters singing in the background. Russell also does a holiday version of her hit "Get Here," which is as powerful now as it was 10 years ago during the Gulf War. --Mark Ruffin

Smooth Jazz Christmas
Debra Smith | Seattle, WA USA | 11/13/2001

"If you are a true Jazz lover and a great fan of Dave Koz, this is the CD to have. It is awesome! From the first minute you hear music to the melody tracks of Brenda Russell, Peter White, David Benoit, Kenny Loggins, and Rick Braun, you are in heaven. Koz and Friends really out done themselves, and I'm counting the days to attend the Holiday Concert in Seattle, WA."
Never tire of listening to this CD

"Since I opened The Smooth Jazz Christmas CD - I have spent hours listening to this one CD. It is such happy and upbeat music. It
has definitely put me in the Christmas spirit - even before November. I can easily play it 2 or 3 times in a row having a
pleasant afternoon at home. As the other reviewers of this CD
said - after the terrorist attacks of Sept 11th - it is refreshing to listen to such joyful music. If I hadn't finished my Christmas shopping already, I would definitely put this on the list for my family and friends. It will go on next year's
list. If you order this CD, you probably will have many hours
of enjoyment from listening to this CD."
AMAZING!
