Twelve Songs Of Christmas

by Etta James

Play on Rhapsody
Released:
Label: Private Music
You can hear decades of hard won experience in Etta James' voice -- even when she's tackling cherished Christmas standards. That attention to detail in a song is what makes this holiday release a cut above the rest. Her "Jingle Bells" recalls carriage rides, "Merry Christmas Baby" once again drips with Yuletide revenge and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" aches with the pains of wartime separation, like it did when it was written. The jazz musicians here include Cedar Walton, Red Holloway and Billy Higgins.
