The talent is amazing and everything is played magically. Dave Brubeck gives a great performance on two songs (he will be missed). Allison Krauss sends shivers up the spine with her incredible voice. Sergio Assad has the magic touch on the guitar. Evwryone does a tremend job.
Yo-Yo Ma isn't famous because he has a catchy name, he's famous because he is very gifted.
Even if you hate Jesus you'll love this album. It's timeless style will be with you always.
Was it another all-star holiday CD? A banal collection of forgettable music that would disappear on the shelf after one or two playings?
Yo-Yo Ma has assembled an all-star cast of musical titans who have managed to create a collection of timeless, harmonious, and utterly original soundings arrangements of beautiful music.
Playing it for friends and family this holiday season has elicited many queries as to who is palying; "what IS that CD?" A wonderful amalgam of classical, popular, new age, jazzy, and new world music, Songs of Joy and Peace never devolves into cliched sentiment or ephemeral new age music. Instead, it is classic and timeless.
With his many classical recordings, Silk Road ensemble, and collaborative works such as this, Yo-Yo Ma has become a national treasure.
If only all of our musicans musically aged as gracefully.
I urge you to purchase this fine disc. You will not be disappointed!
