Editorial Reviews

Grammy nominated and Soultrain Centric Award winner Maysa holds a unique status in the world of R&B/Jazz. Her incomparably lush, sensuous vocals have garnered her legions of fans. As featured lead vocalist for the UK super group Incognito, core member of Stevie Wonder s Wonderlove and, of course, through her own albums and concerts, Maysa has been thrilling R&B and Jazz audiences for decades.

Featuring special guests Will Downing and Gerald Albright, A Very Maysa Christmas presents the Christmas classics as you ve never heard them before. Produced by Chris Big Dog Davis (Kim Burrell, Chantè Moore, Will Downing), these renditions retain the classic holiday warmth, while taking the listener on a spirited, creative, soulful journey that only Maysa can deliver.

Highlights include the Maysa/Will Downing duet of the Donny Hathaway classic, This Christmas , a joyful, hip-hop infused mash up of The Night Before Christmas/Santa Claus is Coming To Town , Maysa s soulful reimagining of Joy to the World and much, much more.

Baltimore’s R&B/Smooth Jazz sensation, Maysa has delivered an awesome treat for the holidays. Her real voice is accompanied by real instrumentation and backed by real harmonious voices. Yes, I am putting the emphasis on real.
A real good natural voice is a rare thing these days. Thankfully, Maysa has always kept it real. She flexes effortlessly from high to low with genuine emotion. Her first Christmas CD isn’t ham or straight up corny.
Maysa put her foot in this one. As executive producer, she chose the songs and recruited the talent.
Will Downing pairs up with Maysa on Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas”. Their soulful rendition has a
musical arrangement that seems partially inspired by Barry White. “It’s The Holidays” written by Maysa
and Chris “Big Dog” Davis could easily become another urban Christmas classic. Maysa’s voice is all over it.
The drum arrangements on “The Little Drummer Boy” have an African, Brazilian and Cuban influence.
Chris ”Big Dog” Davis’ topnotch production made me think of Disney’s “Lion King” musical elements.
Go “Big Dog”. You kept the beats real.
“Pray For Peace” is a great gospel track. Maysa goes to church on that one. Her melodic voice is skillfully
backed by her posse, Maysa’s Sista Friends Praise. Already, I have added that song to my own Diva
Christmas playlist.
From start to finish, I think this real CD artfully expresses the true meaning of Christmas. Thank you Maysa and company for using your gifts to share with us all this holiday season. You guys kept it real.

Grammy-nominated vocalist Maysa Leak's holiday offering, "A Very Maysa Christmas," takes us on a musical journey that ranges from funky and upbeat to poignant and thoughtful. Her hip-hop take on "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" will please music lovers of all ages, and "The Little Drummer Boy" takes its title to heart and offers enough percussion and driving beats to get any Brazilian out of their seat. Will Downing shares vocal duties on a soulful rendition of Donny Hathaway's "This Christmas," while a healthy dose of jazz chords highlight her lovely reading of "Silver Bells." If you've ever enjoyed Maysa's work, "A Very Maysa Christmas" is bound to become an annual listening tradition.

Exactly what you would expect from someone as talented as Maysa. Silky smooth jazzy renditions with some great originals. Hard to choose but my favorite is "This Christmas" featuring Will Downing. Not doubt two of my favorite voices.

Egg nog? Check. Misletoe? Check. Soulful, jazzy holiday music? Check! Now you’ve got A VERY MAYSA CHRISTMAS! With ten of your favorite Christmas classics as you’ve never heard before including special guests Will Downing on a duet on one of the coolest covers of “This Christmas” and Gerald Albright playing a shiny sax on “Silver Bells”! The project is produced by Chris “Big Dog” Davis with some assistance from Ms. Leak, who also serves as the project’s Executive Producer in addition to laying down some of her smoothest, silkiest, sexiest vocals to date, all beautifully wrapped up in this collection of soul-drenched carols. It’s no wonder that Stevie Wonder says, “Maysa is WONDERful!!!”

Actually met Ms.Maysa at a small concert in chgo.
Such a sweet and genuine woman.Her set was wonderful! Always loved her "deep waters" with one of my favorite groups, Incognito. This will become a Christmas classic that you will play throughout the year! Such a warm and heartfelt recording. It seems everything she touches turns to gold!

What can I say. Holiday music and Maysa are a great combination!!! She can sing just about anything and make it sound awesome and she proud that when she sang Chirtmas time is here from the Peanuts and it was so good I didn't even realize that's what it was! Great addition to your holiday playlist!
