Noel En Harmonie Vol. 2

Just in time to stuff the stocking of a jazz-loving music fan comes this excellent new holiday-themed album by the trio of bassist Michel Donato, pianist Pierre Leduc and drummer Richard Provencal. As the title indicates, Noel en harmonie Vol. 2 is a sequel to their well-received first such Christmas collaboration a full decade ago (the talented trio of veterans also put out a non-holiday album, Deja-Jazz, in 2006). This collection presents a nice mix of swingin' and mellow tunes, ranging from "Jingle Bell Rock" and John and Yoko's "Happy Christmas (War Is Over)" to the more traditional "O Little Town Of Bethlehem". Also adding variety to this lovely release are renditions of two Tchaikovsky pieces and two traditional tunes in French.
