World Christmas [Capitol]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Roch Parisien
With a lineup that includes Papa Wemba, Angelique Kidjo, Cearia Evora, Zakir Hussain, Yomo Toro, and the Gipsy Kings, World Christmas certainly gives the impression of broad international diversity. However...the set of mostly traditional seasonal tunes has more mainstream conventional Western jazz backing of Bob Berg, Jim Beard, John Scofield, Marcus Miller, Joshua Redman and ambient group Deep Forest. Still above average on the distinctiveness scale -- Kidjo's voice percussion on "Zan Vevede O Holy Night" is especially noteworthy -- with proceeds benefiting the Special Olympics.
