This is great! It is like listening to The Andrews Sisters, only modern. If like me you enjoy classic Christmas songs, you probably have albums like the amazing Merry Christmas With Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters
, and I suppose you might wonder why get the album of a contemporary group, singing 40s style Christmas songs, when you can have the original. Indeed most of the songs in this album are oldies, like "Here Comes Santa Claus", "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!", "White Christmas", "Santa Baby" , "Mele Kalikimaka" , "Winter Wonderland", and "O Holy Night", performed in a retro style. Well, the obvious reason to get this album, is because it is excellently done; great music, nostalgic lyrics, imaginative arrangements and creative performances, all that by artists who seem to love and enjoy what they do.
Also, the album includes newer popular Christmas songs like Elton John's 1970s "Step into Christmas", Wham's 1980s "Last Christmas", and Mariah Carey's 1990s "All I Want for Christmas Is You", all performed in the modern burlesque-ish jazz style of the Puppini Sisters. I actually think that these versions of all three of these songs are far better then the originals and they certainly made me like the songs more.
In total this is an excellent Christmas album; a very original idea, skillfully executed in the unique Puppini Sisters style, with a great deal of humor and imagination, thus highly recommended.
Have a Very Happy Christmas!!!
