If you could rate CD reviews by kisses, I would have my
lip marks all over this disc. David Leonhardt has created something special for us to be edified by.....And, the frosting is his choice of the fine talents of one Nancy Reed, jazz singer extraordinaire. The CD features some of the more traditional Christmas songs, but delivered very different & tastefully. As a fellow jazz singer, might I compliment Nancy's wonderfully controlled pop-jazz vibrato which she uses with panache, giving the songs her unique interpretation. Overall, the group delivers their music with a relaxed rhythmic feeling, executed with care, discipline, frivolity, dignity & assertiveness........And last, subtle in it's musical power.
