Notes & Reviews:

Who would have thought that a CD of well-known and traditional Christmas carols could be so surprising and innovative? Berlin Voices, one of Germany's most popular jazz vocal ensembles, have succeeded in doing just that with their new holiday album 'About Christmas' - a delightfully, swinging program of popular Christmas carols sung in German and English. The Perfect soundtrack for your busy holiday season!



Reviews

So fun!
What fun! This is the kind of album you expect to hear at a Christmas party! So much energy with this group…even in the slower songs. Their harmonies are tight and together. Reminds me of something you’d hear from Manhattan Transfer. Love the jazzy style and the laid back approach to the carols we all know and love. I’d love to hear more from this group.
