"I'll Be Home for Christmas" again teams guitars and strings to produce a poignant rendition of this emotionally powerful classic.

With reviews that pronounce a Tommy Emmanuel concert as "coming face-to-face with a god," calling the man a guitarist is like labeling the Taj Mahal a house. His playing draws superlatives such as "genius" and "virtuoso." From the nimble fingers of this gregarious phenomenon comes his first holiday album, "All I Want for Christmas." Ably backed on rhythm guitar by veteran finger picker John Knowles, Emmanuel's compilation of enduring treasures and new delights is a must-have for every music aficionado.

The disc opens with a rollicking version of "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer" including lively syncopation, chords that dance up and down the frets, and Emmanuel's satisfied chuckle. He segues gently into another perennial favorite, "White Christmas," beginning with a slow, introspective vibe and transitioning into a gentle rhythm. "Jingle Bells" swings along in lively homage to Chet Atkins, Emmanuel's late muse, mentor, and friend, while a string quartet adds depth and richness to "The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)." Country-flavored "Winter Wonderland" offers another solid interpretation of a timeless tune, and Knowles' rhythm guitar imparts a distinctive beat to "Mary's Boy Child" that supports Emmanuel's intricate layers of melody and harmony. He releases more of his exuberant personality on "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town," complete with a little scattin', a little singin', and a whisper at the end.

Included in this holiday mix are two new instrumentals. "The Magic of Christmas Time" pairs the guitarist with song composer Rick Price on piano for a lovely and gentle tune that would make the perfect background for a snowy day.

Australian guitar player Tommy Emmanuel may just be the single most talented picker of his generation. His finger- and flat-picking are precise yet graceful, with tone that's clean but still soulful. Emmanuel sticks to his acoustic here, playing in both solo and band settings. It's the former, in which his syncopated bass runs support the melodies, that is the most mesmerizing. The song list is mostly well-worn chestnuts, but Emmanuel's sprightly and sensitive renderings make them sound fresh. This album will fit perfectly into many different holiday activities, whether you need background music for family gatherings, meditative instrumentals to unwind after the rigors of shopping, or rich instrumental versions of Christmas classics to set a holiday mood.

Songs from this album can be enjoyed throughout the year. I believe two in particular will become classics: "One Christmas Night" (written by Tommy) and "The Magic of Christmas Time" (written by Rick Price and performed by Tommy and Rick).
These songs have no season and are beautifully performed! Love the music, and find the selections with Tommy and John Knowles also fun and festive!

I heard Mr. Emmanuel on public tv so I knew how talented he was. I ordered 3 Cd's and when I played one, I immediately ordered 8 more as gifts for family and friends(I kept 1 for myself).All familiar Christmas songs and How Great Thou Art played on guitar by an artist , so tastefully and well played, they are sure to heighten the holiday spirit. Both orders were delivered quickly, well packaged and accurately.
