4.0 out of 5 stars Great music for a good cause, too, November 17, 2008
This review is from: This Warm December: A Brushfire Holiday Vol. 1 (Audio CD)
"This Warm December" is the first volume of what hopefully will be a long-standing Christmas offering from Brushfire Records artists. The CD is 11 songs, somewhat short at a bit over 31 minutes, but the songs are well done.

You've got a good mix of standards and covers. While the covers are good, I'm focusing mostly on the four new songs for the review.

"No Christmas for Me" by Zee Avi is a new song I think we're going to hear a lot particularly in love song dedications of people wanting their baby back. Avi sounds a lot like Madeline Peyroux to me with a very light jazzy voice.

"Stuck at the Airport" by Money Mark is another new song. Definitely a theme many of us can identify with.

"Christmas Baby" by G. Love is an upbeat, jazzy love song that we'll probably hear dedicated frequently.

"Christmas Time" by Al'oos is a new song despite the title being similar to others. It talks about family getting together, the plague of lights not lighting, etc. Definitely a very real Christmas experience.

Twenty-five percent of this collection's sales are going to support music education for youth. What a terrific Christmas gift and a way to give back to the community from the proceeds of their success.
