As Thanksgiving approaches and families make their way to each other across the country, LML thought it would be fun to feature an album that features such a wonderfully family oriented album cover. It’s one of our favorites. What do you think?
This is What I Want for Christmas by Russ Lorenson, a fabulous cabaret Christmas album that is equal parts smooth and clever. Russ is a wonderful artist based in San Francisco, accomplished in musical theatre, cabaret, jazz and pop music. He is critically acclaimed and best known for his critically-acclaimed tribute to Tony Bennett in his show, “Benedetto/Blessed: Celebrating the Life and Music of Tony Bennett.”
“Lorenson is not just a crooner covering the traditional Sinatra style or trying to be the next Connick; he is his own man.” – Jazz Review
Here’s the track listing for What I Want for Christmas:
1 My Favorite Time Of Year
2 I Guess There Ain’t No Santa Claus
3 Christmas Waltz
4 If I Hear Another Song About Christmas
