Album Notes
Almost That Time of Year, is saxophonist Shannon Kennedy's fourth album release. Her first record, Angel Eyes, was released in 2005 when Kennedy was just 17 years old, and since, she has released three additional self-produced albums.

Almost That Time of Year debuts Kennedy's skills as a vocalist in addition to her already established saxophone and flute playing. The album includes two of her own original Christmas songs in addition to a collection of traditional carols and contemporary seasonal music such as Joni Mitchell's River and Michael Bolton's Our Love is Like a Holiday.

The album also features several artists well known in the smooth jazz industry including Special EFX guitarist and band leader, Chieli Minucci, on Carol of the Bells. Greg Adams, from Tower of Power appears with Shannon on Baby It's Cold Outside, lending his sensitive trumpet playing to accompany Shannon on soprano saxophone. Peter White also joins Shannon on a few songs on the record including playing piano on River and Baby It's Cold Outside. Chicago's sultry guitarist, Nick Colionne, also plays on Santa Baby.

This album exemplifies Kennedy's growth and skill as a producer, musician, and recording artist, it is an excellent addition to any music collection.
