Album Notes
The group of seasoned session musicians, who've come to be known as "THE RAX PACK", went into the studio when our keyboard player (and Grammy award nominated producer) called one morning and said "......meet me in the 'lab', I feel like making a Christmas CD". We then called on several of our musician and vocal artist friends, who we've had the honor of working with over the years. The result was a collaborative Christmas project unlike anything I've ever heard. Spanning across several generations and genres of music, dating back to the early 1900's (...Mahalia Jackson), to the current neo-soul sounds of today (...Jill Scott)….and everything in between. Not looking to re-invent the wheel, we carefully matched old skool vocalists to sing old skool material; jazz vocalists to do the jazzy material; classically trained vocalist to do the classical standards; then neo-soul and R&B vocalists to sing the material of their respective stylings.

Someone recently asked me which song was my personal favorite. After listening intently to each track, it was still hard for me to say. I love Tyrone Block's (...former director of the Thompson Community Singers) choir on "Do You Hear What I Hear". But the strong "ol skool" tenor voice of James Howard on "Give Me Jesus", keeps playing in my sleep. Hamisi killed the drum solo on "Li'l Drummer Boy" and I've never heard it sang as sexy as Justine did it. But Shon's exquisite piano work, combined with the operatic soprano voice of Nicole on the "The Christmas Medley" is awesome (sounds like something you'd use in a dept. store, to get people in the Christmas spirit). Then, the neo-soul feel of "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen".................WHEW.

I could not come up with a favorite....You probably won't either. Take a listen, and tell me your fav...

Can't listen enough!
I've been waiting for this album to drop since I first heard the buzz about it - I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED!
I've been looking for some mellow, elegant, Christmas Music to play at my dinner parties or evening at home sipping wine with the husband , and I found everything I needed in one CD! Best 10 bucks I've spent this year!


Feels like a playlist of Christmas favorites.....
I can't stop listening. The energy and attitude of this CD has held me captivated. It is so diversed that it feels like I've created a Christmas playlist to put me in the Christmas mood. Very tastefully produced, throughout. I love it.......


Classics at it's best!!!!
I purchased this album after I fell in love with the samples and I was not disappointed! This is holiday classics at their best and I can't wait to play it on Christmas for family and friends. Actually, I will play it all year round!
