Jeff Johnson, Brian Dunning, Wendy Goodwin, and their colleagues have given us a wonderful Christmas gift . . . Under the Wonder Sky. I must confess that I have already opened this gift for myself, and I love it, though I am saving my listening pleasure for the approaching Advent and Christmas season.

Nine years ago, Johnson and Dunning and associates produced my favorite Christmas instrumental CD: A Quiet Knowing Christmas. This collection of "celtic" music has filled my home for almost a decade. Now these marvelous musicians have done it again.

Under the Wonder Sky contains eleven songs. Nine are classic carols; two are original recordings. All of them will draw you in to the true spirit of Christmas. The combination of instruments offers and enticing, almost a haunting sense of wonder and delight. Johnson and Dunning's music is especially helpful for those of us who need moments of restful peace during the business of the Christmas season.

Though I've bought this album for myself, I plan to give it to friends and family. I can think of no better way to help people celebrate Christmas. So, do yourself a favor, open this gift. And then give it away to others.

Jeff Johnson is a man of many musical moods. Instrumental or vocal albums. Chamber music or synth rock. Musical travelogs or accompaniments for reading. New creations or ancient renditions. Trailblazing or traditional. Solo or ensemble. Selah meditation or singer-songwriter composition. And this latest? This evocatively titled album, incidentally NPR "Echoes" December album of the month, is a collection of instrumental, Celtic-tinged, Christmas carols, the latest of six Johnson seasonal projects which stray variously among the styles above. It's just the thing to hear drifting over the scent of bayberry candles on a cold winter night, snuggled with a cup of hot cider under a blanket on the divan, maybe with a good book. It's everything everyone loves about the unique, indefinable, yet always recognizable Jeff Johnson light, deft musical touch, which makes his multitude of fans crave more.

Why then a four? Merely because to always be doling out fives inflates the rating process. This best falls among so many bests that it comes down to simply a matter of taste or style or musical mood as to which are the fives. My favorite Johnson albums range all over the board, some less known, nearly lost to history, favorites of a few, far from the madding crowd. These would include The Memory Tree The Memory Tree, Pilgrimage Pilgrimage, Songs from Albion Songs From Albion, Icons

I am happy to get a new wonderful record from Jeff Johnson and Brian Dunning. I love the group Nightnoise and these two was members of that group. Under the Wonder Sky have lovely and relaxing melodies from these to excellent musicans, together with violinist Wendy Goodvin. The contemporary Celtic trio take listeners on a glorious winter`s evening journey. I will highly recommend this wonderful recording.
