The new age holiday institution's first concert outing in 20 years, the smartly titled Live was recorded over two nights at Omaha, Nebraska's historic Orpheum Theater. The Chip Davis production features a large cast of players, including his youngest daughter, Elyse, who delivers a lovely rendition of "Greensleeves." The 18-track set features Yuletide staples like "Deck the Halls, "Silent Night," "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen," and, of course, the band's spirited, signature reworking of "Carol of the Bells." ~ James Christopher Monger
