Product Description

Product Description

Yo-Yo Ma has joined together with a remarkable group of friends to create 'Songs Of Joy And Peace'. Intended as a universal celebration of the holiday spirit, the album includes duets with James Taylor, Alison Krauss, Diana Krall, Renée Fleming, Dave Brubeck, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile, amongst others.

From the Artist

"It started with the idea of a party, a party built around the concept of joy and the infinite varieties of joy to be found in the world. But joy can't exist in our world without the comfort of peace. As we all draw closer and closer together in this world, nothing is more important. So as much as the music in this album is about joy, it is also about peace, about the two operating in tandem. I am really excited to know that I have all these fabulous colleagues who think the same way." - Yo-Yo Ma on SONGS OF JOY & PEACE

Format:Audio CD
This CD is a wonderful, eclectic collection of mostly joyful, mostly jazz tunes. Yo-Yo has brought together some of today's most accomplished musicians in jazz (eg Brubeck, Krall, Botti,Redman), traditional/Celtic (eg Taylor, Meyer,MacMaster,Krauss, Pato), and Latin jazz (eg Assad, D'Rivera)and given us many well-known traditional songs with surprisingly different twist. The arrangements are all well polished and his cello accompaniment adds a warmth and richness to each song.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joy 12 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first saw part of the dvd on Sky Arts 2 and recorded most of it . Some while later I " rediscovered " it whilst browsing Amazon - - and bought . My lady friend and I watched the dvd from start to finish , absolutely spell bound. A most beautiful musical and emotional experience
Buy Amazon's dvd/cd package and thrill to what you see and hear - - - a mandolin player who " freaks out " , sitting between Yo Yo Ma and Renee Fleming - - - Dave Brubeck " forgetting " his wedding anniversary - - - so much joy , so much humour - - - just maybe a tad too much mutual admiration society , but since some of the most talented musicians in the world are featured , perhaps understandable and forgiveable .
I loved every minute of it .

2.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant background music 18 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought on a 4 star rating review I found this to be spectacularly bland and uninspiring. Shame really as the line up looked promissing. Will stay on the shelf until next Xmas when I'll dust it off and give it another chance.
