12 Days of Christmas Songs

Dec 14, 2010 | News | 0 comments

So I have this unusual habit of collecting Christmas music, don’t ask me why, but I have tons, from Nat King Cole to Squirrel Nut Zippers. So just for kicks, I’m doing my “12 days of Christmas Songs”, with one oddball, rarely-heard recommendation each day. I’ll be posting on Facebook and Twitter each day, so become a fan here or follow me there to get your daily recommendation

Day 1:  “Little Jack Frost” by Emilie-Claire Barlow

Day 2: Try Steve Tyrell, jazz singer, doing Rudolph. Many have tried it-his voice gets it. This is Rudolph, with Clark Terry, from his album, “This Time of Year”
