Christmas Review

by Jon O'Brien

His fourth release to credit "the Little Big Band," Christmas is a holiday-themed collection of songs from blues/rock singer/songwriter Colin James. Recorded in Nashville, the 2007 album features swing interpretations of familiar seasonal classics "Please Come Home for Christmas," "Let It Snow," and "Blue Christmas," alongside some lesser-known tracks (Louis Prima's "Shake Hands with Santa Claus," Louis Armstrong's "Cool Yule"), and a rendition of traditional African-American spiritual song, "Children, Go Where I Send Thee."
