A New Orleans Christmas

Allen Toussaint is the epitome of the essence of New Orleans music; here he does Christmas songs with the two genres forming a perfect meld. We have some of the essentials -- "Silent Night, Holy Night," and "Winter Wonderland" (as done by Allen on solo piano), and "Jingle Bells" (with the New Birth Brass Band) -- and a few other standards done in non-sappy ways, along with several other not-so-familiar Christmas songs, all performed by the cream of New Orleans musicians. There are blues, Second Line, rhythm & blues, and jazz, all represented in a coherent manner, and newcomer Grace Darling acquits herself well.
