Product Description

Released in Japan over the '04 holidays, An Acapella Christmas delivers unforgettable seasons greetings with dazzling instrument-less renditions of Yuletide carols and classics. Their first Christmas album since 1992 and first ever acapella release! Deck the halls with the Transfer's vocal-only versions of 'Good King Wenceslas,' 'Merry Christmas Baby,' and 'I'll Be Home For Christmas.' Also features a toe tapping version of 'Jingle Bells,' White Christmas, and 'Winter Wonderland.'

Amazon.com

These sophisticated jazz singers prove just how much their vocal versatility has always embraced pop, doo-wop, rounds, and a cappella music when the foursome explores 10 Christmas songs on a disc that previously was available only in Japan. The group transports "Jingle Bells" to the '40s in a sweeping nostalgic turn and do a knockout take on Charles Brown’s low-down "Merry Christmas Baby" that showcases how elegantly funky they can be. An Acapella Christmas balances the more sophisticated harmony singing the group is known for alongside straightforward versions of "Christmas Is Coming," "Good King Wenceslas" (complete with kid voices), and an otherwise forgettable blatant play for radio on "My Grown-Up Christmas List." But with can't-miss readings of "Christmas Time Is Here," "White Christmas," and a totally magical exploration of "Toyland," the Manhattan Transfer delivers the kind of holiday record certain to please first time listeners while satisfying longtime fans. --Martin Keller
