Ten on Tuesday

It's time to get in the holiday spirit and what better way to do that than by enjoying some Christmas music!  This week's prompt from Carole is....

 10 Favorite Christmas Albums

1. A Fresh Aire Christmas by Mannheim Steamroller.  If truth be told, 1-5 should be Mannheim albums because we have them all and listen to all of them every year. Repeatedly!  But I'm going to consider them only once.  I chose this album because of Veni, Veni.  There is something about this piece that just speaks to me.  Here is a link for you to enjoy if you'd like

2. Smooth Jazz Christmas by Dave Koz and Friends. I discovered Dave Koz a few years ago and really enjoy his music. He's a talented Jazz musician!
3. A Very Special Christmas, the first one that has the red cover.  We have a little dance party to Run Rudolph Run by Bryan Adams every year :-)
4. Boogie Woogie Christmas by Brian Setzer Orchestra.  There is a song on this album called Cactus Christmas that is my husband's favorite.  Imagine a cowboy singing about Christmas, by the campfire with his trusty horse, and you've got the vibe.  Fun album!
5. Miracles: The Holiday Album by Kenny G.  I find this to be a nice instrumental album
6. December by George Winston.  This is a classic and one I find to be soothing.
7. On a Cold Winter's Night by Ed Gerhard. Ed is a local musician for me, and when I say local, I mean he lives and records in my town.  He is an amazing guitarist and the benefit concert he does every year at our Grange Hall/Community Club is a sold out/ standing room only affair.
8. Christmas by Michael Buble.  He is a smooth crooner and we enjoy him very much!

And now, I'm drawing a blank.  Don't you just hate it when that happens?  But from reading the lists of the few other people that are participating this week, I am looking forward to getting the James Taylor at Christmas album and the Peanuts: A Charlie Brown Christmas Soundtrack.

Enjoy the Holidays!
