He Is Christmas

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This CD finds the somewhat miraculous a cappella sextet Take 6 emphasizing the religious side of the holiday season. One of the world's only gospel jazz groups, Take 6 uses advanced harmonies and sophisticated improvisations while always keeping "the message" in the forefront. However, this Christmas set is rather brief just 35½ minutes and, even with a few highlights the Yellowjackets' guest appearance on "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" and a drum machine used to humorous effect on the bizarre "'Twas Da Nite", the results are not all that essential.

    Miraculous vocals indeed

    Take 6 has a an incredible gift for harmony and musicianship. There are no other groups in the music business that can touch them. My favorites are the a cappella arrangements of "O Come All Ye Faithful," "Away In A Manger," "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," and "Silent Night." These arrangements are simply outstanding, and the group's delivery makes me cry 9 times out of 10. I will admit that I can live without the track "Twas Da Nite," but if you truly enjoy music, you are doing yourself a disservice by not listening to these beautiful songs.
