5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!! October 26, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I found this CD quite by accident...I had done an Amazon search for 2010 Christmas music, and this one came up. I am SO glad I got this CD. Not only can these girls sing like nobody's business, but the arrangements are terrific. I was especially fascinated with their versions of the more recent pop holiday numbers; after all, it's probably likely that you've heard a big band/swing version of "Let It Snow" or "Winter Wonderland", but how about Wham's "Last Christmas" or Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas"? The older standards are just as lovely. Get this one and you won't be sorry!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant covers with one radical re-interpretation November 21, 2010
Format:Audio CD
The Puppini sisters aren't really sisters, but they harmonize well together and they have a very distinctive sound that ensures their future (if they want it) in cabaret long after their commercial recording days are over, but let's hope that doesn't happen any time soon. Although difficult to classify, I suppose jazz-pop would be the best description. Jazz-pop is far more popular in America than Britain, but the Puppini sisters with their upbeat music are surely helping to boost the music's popularity in Britain. Their enthusiasm for upbeat jazz-pop music makes it no surprise that the Andrews sisters provide their biggest influence.

As somebody who owns a lot of Christmas albums and has reviewed plenty of others borrowed from the library, I generally prefer those albums that contain at least some unfamiliar material, but as soon as I knew that the Puppini sisters had recorded a Christmas album, I also knew it was a must-have even if every song was a familiar classic. From their previous albums and their cover of Jingle bells (not on any of their own albums; see later), I realized that they were capable of bringing freshness and excitement to familiar songs. This album contains exactly the kind of Christmas music that I expected from them, though I don't think anything could have prepared me for their entertaining version of Step into Christmas; I hope it impressed the co-writers Elton John and Bernie Taupin as it certainly impressed me.

Of the other songs, most date back originally back to the thirties, forties and fifties. On these songs, the Puppini sisters turn in excellent performances although they don't really add anything new to these songs. However, their jazz-pop arrangements distinguish their versions of Last Christmas (Wham!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent holiday songs with lots and lots of energy October 21, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
The Puppini Sisters (Marcella Puppini, Kate Mullins, and Stephanie O'Brien) can celebrate their success with the release of their very recent Christmas album, "Christmas with The Puppini Sisters." They sing and harmonize to perfection; each song here is beautifully done and there's not a bad tune in the lot. The quality of the sound is excellent; and you can choose to either download individual songs from the album or buy all the songs on CD.

When I heard the sound clips here on Amazon I was rather anxious to hear it all so I am basing this review on the MP3 downloads. I was anything but disappointed! "Step into Christmas" gets a most spirited treatment from these ladies who make this their own with changes in tempo and keys--and it all works to great advantage. I love the positive energy of the song and they never let go of a single superfluous note! In addition, the very classic "Santa Baby" shines bright in their capable hands; this song slows down the pace somewhat and it all works very well. The music fits perfectly with their vocals and the tune even has a retro flavor to it that I really enjoy.

"Here Comes Santa Claus" amazes me with that musical arrangement and their singing; The Puppini Sisters perform this with panache and that's grand. "Last Christmas" is very well done; I like the percussion and that guitar work--indeed, the number is a highlight of the album. "Let It Snow" is impossible to listen to just once; I find myself pushing the reply button on my CD player after this one ends! The Puppini Sisters even place their own stamp on "White Christmas" by using several creative key modulations and instruments like the guitar; and "All I Want for Christmas" thrills me every time I hear it.

I have listened to the Boswell sisters since almost forever. They were a sister musical act from New Orleans and made a large number of recordings from 1925-36... they were the original sister act which all others including the Andrew sisters tried to emulate. I know all the Boswell harmonies and rhythm changes and voices by heart. For years I had wished they'd recorded even more songs than they did in their short 11-year recording history. They were actually real blood sisters and each could play an instrument sometimes while they were harmonizing... all of it done live. Then, while I was searching for new Christmas music I came across the Puppini "sister" act and couldn't believe my ears!!! the more I listen the more I was convinced it was the Boswell Sisters reborn!!! That was a musical style that should never have died... I'm glad its back.

Just in time for the onslaught of Holiday Records, the Puppini SIsters arrive with the perfect Christmas Gift!!! These girls are aces, in my book they can do no wrong, now they have given us the most fabulous, original, enjoyable
Christmas CD of the year!! Without even hearing any of the songs, I ordered this CD, and now I can't take it off my CD player!! I was lucky enough to see them live this past year, and meet and greet with these wonderful ladies.
If you ever get the chance go see them please, it is an evening you won't soon forget. Thank you ladies for this wonderful Yuletide CD. If I had to pick a favorite, it would be Mele Kalikimaka. But I love them all. I will enjoy this CD
for many Christmas to come, and I will make it a gift to my friends this Christmas!!! They are the best!!!!!!
