Biography

The a cappella jazz group known as Take 6 are not only the heirs to the rich tradition of the doo-wop and gospel groups of the 1950s, but also the leaders in the second wave of jazz and pop vocal groups that emerged in the 1990s. With these noteworthy legacies at their foundation, these 10-time GRAMMY® Award winners continue to look and move in a forward direction as the first decade of ... Read more in Amazon's Take 6 Store

From Amazon.com

The follow-up to the Grammy-winning He Is Christmas, We Wish You a Merry Christmas finds Take 6 at their finest. The sextet's a cappella melodies paved the way for R&B boy groups Boys II Men and may recall Manhattan Transfer's multipart harmonic convergence, yet they continue to be unmatched in their ingenious take on popular jazz-vocal gospel. This outing finds the Seventh Day Adventist-affiliated outfit firmly locked into their signature vocal blend, augmenting their doo-wop a cappella styling with the occasional piano, light-handed bass, guitar, drums, and the cool blue saxophone of Kirk Whalum. A few songs are embellished by a triad of female harmonies and Brian McKnight (brother of founding member Claude McKnight) appears on "The Christmas Song." Chestnuts like "Silver Bells," "Go Tell It on the Mountain," and "Joy to the World," while happily recognizable, ring out especially merry as rendered by these fresh fellows. --Paige La Grone

Format: Audio CD
Why should Christmas albums be brought out and dusted down but once a year for a few weeks and then put away again. I can honestly say that this is an album that won't be put away. Although these songs are seasonal, the arrangements, production and sheer vocal splender will have you reaching for this album again and again. Who needs a band when you have vocals as amazing as these 6 guys from the states. Treat yourself and let the sounds of Christmas fill your house every day of the year.

This album goes into the CD player in my car in November and doesn't come out until January. It's amazing from start to finish. You won't hear another Christmas album that's this good (including Take 6: He is Christmas, which is a distant second place).
Like harmony? Like Christmas? You'll love this. Get it bought.

A GIFT FOR ALL SEASONS 17 Jun. 2000
By R. McRae - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS, is the outstanding new holiday companion to 1991's: HE IS CHRISTMAS. With the great arrangements of the latter, there were a few complaints that the Christmas standards were "unrecognizable." Refreshing in my opinion. This new effort should please most everyone. Unique, is what you have to call Take 6. Always taking even the familiar to another level.

Opening the set with Track #1 "We Wish You A Merry Christmas/Carol Of The Bells," I already had reason enough to buy it(Carol Of The Bells)being my all time favorite. Of course, I'd buy just about anything with Take 6 on it, they're that good. Tracks #2 and 3 then relaxe you with the guys polished pipes, and some great accompaniment from the Whalum brothers. #5: "Go Tell It On The Mountain," finds three of the wives almost stealing the show.

Not many versions of "The Christmas Song" are worth hearing after you've heard the master, Nat King Cole. But I think you will agree, Track #5 ain't too shabby. And for the best doo-wop since the 1950s, it's #6: "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas." Paul Jackson Jr's acoustic guitar intro on #7: "What Child Is This?" perfectly sets the mood for some of the sweetest sounds-this side of Heaven. #8: "Silver Bells," was the only low point for me. The vocals are there, it just dragged a little too much for my taste.

#'s 9, 10 and 11, wrap you up in the true Spirit of the season; especially "Joy To The World." This is the "Take 6 sound" at its best.

Take 6 do it again! 9 Oct. 1999
By Mark De-Lisser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Can Take 6 produce anything not worthy of the highest praise? I don't think so. This new album, full of Christmas classics that the guys have taken and made there own is again a masterpiece. Sending out the message of Christ and the meaning of Christmas. Whilst in my estimation not as enjoyable as their previous Christmas offering, my enjoyment was only marginally less. Notable songs on this album amongst others are Go Tell It On The Mountain featuring the wives of three of the guys and Joy To The World - an arrangement that has left a number of my musical peers and myself speechless! The guys have done it again. This is a must buy for all fans and non-fans alike. If it's harmony you want, there is no better group than Take 6. Highly recommended.

Just fabulous! 18 Dec. 2005
By Alexander Quinn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The singing and arrangements on this CD are some of their best. I've heard a lot of Christmas music lately (Dec 18, today) and this is by far my favorite. Although all the songs are standard Christmas songs rather than originals, each one has been rendered in a fresh, original, and wonderful way. Unlike some Christmas albums, the arrangements aren't weird or contrived; they fit the spirit of the songs beautifully, within the unique style and talent of Take 6. One of my favorites is "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas", which is rendered with sort of a doo-wap groove. It's hard to describe, but it just works. I guess you can listen to the samples.

Honestly, I'm perplexed at why some other reviewers don't like it. This is one of 8 Take 6 albums in my collection, and I'd rank it at least in the top half. It is on the jazzy size of their work, as opposed to some of their religious albums. But, it's really nice to listen to. I listen over and over and never get tired of it.

Highly recommended.

Still the best! 6 Nov. 2000
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This stuff isn't light by any stretch, my fellow reviewer; the songs are lighter in text only. Which Ave Maria do you think you would suggest? The Hallelujah Chorus has a simple motif and one major stylistic change. The layers of complexity to every song on this CD make this the Christmas pick of the season. I get chills with this CD that I liken to the chills when I first heard this group live in 86.
What makes this CD work is that unlike their first Christmas CD, the harmonies work for them rather than against. Although I loved their first Holiday project, I couldn't get an average non-musical friend to buy into it, because he or she couldn't understand the beauty of the harmonies. All these songs, however, are secular and sacred classics. I can now share TAKE 6 with friends through this "outreach" vehicle!

A Great Christmas Album 16 Jun. 2002
By J. RANDELL TIONGSON - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
What happens when the world's best singing group record a christmas album? Then you get one of the best christmas albums ever recorded. The harmony of Take 6 is at its best, as always. The christmas tunes really make good singing for this fnatastic group. Every track is a great one. Hope to hear more works from Take 6.
