Jazz harp? Jazz Christmas harp? Liza Rey provides uncommon, unusual listening fare and does it playing Christmas carols! The old familiars are there, including "Three Kings," "Little Drummer Boy," and "What Child Is This?." There as well is Ms. Rey's sterling harp work, refreshing in its innovative, light groove approach to these seasonal treasures. Complementing her light jazz flavor is the outstanding sax work of Ray Smith and the keyboard and harmonica of Kurt Bestor. Percussion, guitar, violin, oboe, carolers and a children's chorus round out this contemporary, wholly enjoyable look at Christmas favorites.
