I've been a big fan of Holly Cole's music for a while. I love her sultry voice and the fascinating rhythm in the arrangements of her songs. She's able to take "old" music and make it fresh and exciting, while still keeping it familiar enough to not be weird.
Then I found her Christmas album, and I was completely hooked. (I wish she'd make another one!) It's my favorite album to listen to during the holidays. It's bouncy, fun, playful, but still pensive and reverent and serious enough to be an all-around great CD.
However, since we can't will Holly to make another Christmas album, T is taking me to her Christmas concert here in Boston :) I'm super-excited. Giddy almost!
So next Friday, December 4, I'll be on cloud nine, listening to some deliciously smooth jazz in the Christmas spirit at Sculler's Jazz Club.
I wonder if they'll let us dance at all? Hmm.. :)
