Kurt EllingBeautiful Day – Kurt Elling Sings Christmas (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Okeh/Music On Vinyl (UK), 2016. New Copy ... About November 1, 2017
An excellent addition to the Christmas jazz canon – a wonderfully warm album of vocal performances from the great Kurt Elling, served up here in a really classic style! We love Kurt's regular work – and have been strong supporters since he first got his start here in Chicago – and the sense of songcraft he brings to the performances here are really wonderful – far more than just a singer brought in the studio in July, to hack out a few tunes for December – and instead, more of a journey to seek deeper meaning from the music in general – as Elling weaves together familiar songs and new moments with a lot more complexity than the average Christmas record. Arrangements are by Kurt and band members Stuart Mindeman, John McLean, and Clark Sommers – and titles include "The Snow Is Deep On The Ground/Snowfall", "Christmas Children", "We Three Kings", "Some Children See Him", "The Michigan Farm", "Same Old Lang Syne", "This Christmas", and "The Beautiful Day" – plus some shorter "Wencelaus/Image" pieces, used by Kurt to link together some passages of the album.
