Tuck Andress, Will Ackerman, Steve Morse, Alex de Grassi, Steve Erquiaga, and others provide a gorgeous sounding collection of holiday fare, equally divided between sacred and secular tunes. Again, the audio is stellar, and the playing, with the possible exception of the hot-dogging Morse, serves the music, rather than showcasing the individual guitarist's gift. If Christmas records are your thing, there is real enjoyment to be found here. 'Cept the Morse cut, though.

    Windham Hill Holiday Guitar Collection

    This is a wonderful, fresh recording with guitar performances of many holiday favorites, as well as, less well known songs. We've listened to it a lot this month without tiring of it. Very soothing background music or in the car while taking those long trips over the holidays. An excellent addition to our holiday favorites collection. All the Windham Hill artists are very good; never gets old.
