ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I give you the gift of music: a Christmas full of wonderful new up-beat Christmas hits in the making. Premiéres of new songs. New life for a couple of old gems. A new look at the wonderful White Christmas. Songs by new friends. Songs for the 90s. My stocking overflows with the creativity of each and every one of these truly great musicians. And the star at the top of the tree, Mike Renzi.

"Our First Christmas" together. That delightful opening song, delectable arrangements, delicious piano and a living doll! He's a girl singer's dream come true, direct from Santa Claus!

Well-known singer, Cynthia Crane, "VIVACIOUS, EXCITING CHANTEUSE (VARIETY), " and accompanist-to-the-stars, Mike Renzi, features 11 brand-new, nearly new or nearly forgotten upbeat pop/jazz Christmas hits-in-the-making, arranged and back up by Renzio and a group of the best musicians in the business.

From the happy title song, "Our First Christmas, " through the swinging "Once A Year Miracle" and "Little Jack Frost," the lush boss-novas "The Best Christmas "and "Christmas Is An Island, " the beautifully lyrical "A Song For Christmas" and "Christmas Morning" to the deliciously comic "If I Hear Another Song About Christmas," this album cries out for radio play during the coming Christmas season in the traditional pop Christmas market starved for good new songs. "YOUR CHRISTMAS 'GOODY' NOT ONLY SOUNDS WONDERFUL, IT IS STUNNINGLY PACKAGED."
Michael Kerker ASCAP
