5.0 out of 5 stars John Cowan's "Comfort & Joy" a new Christmas classic!, October 15, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Comfort And Joy (MP3 Music)
Let me first state that I am a John Cowan fan, so I am not an impartial observer. I have been a fan of John's since his Newgrass Revival days and am amazed by his talent and dedication to playing his own "brand" of acoustic music. When people go to a John Cowan show, they know he will have amazing musicians and terrific songs to entertain the crowd...they also know they are there for "THE VOICE." Every Cowan fan would tell you that his voice is what made them a fan! The "Comfort and Joy" CD is the PERFECT vehicle to showcase JC's VOICE! From the opening, "Christmas Everyday" to "Go Tell it on the Mountain," you are drawn into the story that he is weaving. You can tell Cowan is excited about this "gift" of Christmas songs and the method of delivery!! There's not a bad song on the CD and his incorporating the vocal talents of several of his friends, like Mike Farris, Bekka Bramlett and Bonnie Bramlett, along with a terrific song written by his step-daughter, Jenny Anne Mannan, "Little Match Girl" that Mannan sings harmony vocals on, shows this CD is about relationships and family! Kind-of like Christmas! :) I am a Christmas CD fanatic, I have 100's of them. Only 1 do I use to decorate the Christmas tree, an old Elvis CD. This year, it will be "Comfort and Joy!" Hope you'll check it out and buy several as gifts, your friends will thank you for it! Merry Christmas! p.s. John's version of "Ave Maria" is worth the cost of the CD alone! Even I was amazed at the range he shows on the song and the serious approach he took to make it a classic. He didn't trivialize the song, he really sang it with technique and breath control. Rock on, JC!
