Christmas for Lovers [Verve]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Matt Collar
Part of Verve's For Lovers series, Christmas for Lovers is a suitably romantic collection of holiday songs. Included are such classic nuggets as Mel Tormé's "Christmas Song" along with lesser-known cuts like Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Looks Like December." There is a warm afterglow quality to these tracks that should appeal to those looking to expand their holiday music collections beyond the norm.
