Description of Yuletide! by Ann Downing
Imagine the timeless scene...One classic singer caught in a soft spotlight...with four talented jazz musicians tucked into the corners of the stage...and you have a front-row seat for this very special Christmas concert.
Some might call it vintage or even "retro," but for Ann Downing, this is the "Yuletide" cd she waited to create until just the right time. She searched until she discovered the classic arrangements of Rosemary Clooney's "Spirit of Christmas," and Ella Fitzgerald's "Sleigh Ride," and then she kept looking...until she found the perfect balance between seasonal evergreen favorites, and the treasured carols that light the way to the true meaning of Christmas.
These are the songs that bring back warm memories...and create new ones. Bask in the glow of fresh jazz arrangements of "Joy To the World," "Silent Night," and "It Came Upon the Midnight Clear," all from the 1970 Dove Award Winning Female Vocalist of the Year.
This cd is destined to earn a special place in your collection of Christmas music favorites as you listen year after year.
You'll understand why Ann Downing smiled when she made her Christmas list this year--because she found the perfect "Yuletide" songs to share with you...and those you love.
