Product Description

 
Kurt Elling performs these songs with such ease and competence and proves once more why he is one of today's most famous jazz singers. The lead track from the album, "Sing A Christmas Carol", begins with a swing and kicks off the feel of the album - melding bright jazz with the sound of a classic Christmas tune.
 
Elling takes well-known holiday favourites, "We Three Kings" and "Same Old Lang Syne" and transforms them into tracks all his own. "Beautiful Day" is the perfect ending to the album, leaving every listener with a big warm smile.
