A few Christmases ago I received Yo Yo Ma's Christmas CD, "Songs of Joy and Peace" and it is exquisite. I expected Joshua Bell's CD to be equally so but I was somewhat disappointed.

What a great way to celebrate the holiday season. Joshua Bell and Friends put together some refreshing  arrangements to the traditional Holiday Classics. Let it Snow is a great salute to the jazz style of Django  Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. And Chick Corea's cool interpretation of Greensleeves took this traditional  English FolkSong to another level. I highly recommend Musical Gifts as one of the season's most original  Holiday CDs.

What a GREAT WAY to CELEBRATE the HOLIDAY SEASON!   " MUSICAL GIFTS: FROM JOSHUA BELL AND FRIENDS"  brought together some refreshing arrangements to  the traditional Holiday Classics. I thought the jazz style of  " Let it  Snow" was a great tribute to guitarist DejangoReinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli. What a COOL ARRANGEMENT of " GREENSLEEVES!" I loved howJoshua Bell & Chick Corea took this Traditional English Folk Song to another level with a twist of Classical & Jazz. How fun it was to listen to Joshua & the a cappella group Straight No Chaser perform " Nutcracker Medley."  All in all, I highly recommend  " Musical Gifts" as one of the season's most original Holiday CDs.

I knew I would like this latest gift from Joshua Bell for many reasons: I'm a big fan of JB, one of my all time favorite CDs is his similar At Home With Friends, and although I'm a classical musician, I enjoy many of his duet partners as well. A Christmas version of my favorite thing...who can resist? I do appreciate many of the selections with my favorite being Greensleeves...what an awesome arrangement with Chick Corea! It won't be my favorite JB CD, but a fun Christmas addition. My main complaint is this: since when is Amazing Grace a Christmas song?!?
