December 2008


​The year 2008 was a difficult and tumultuous one in many respects, but by the time I started putting this CD together things seemed to have bottomed out and there was a sense of relief and optimism following the election of Barack Obama as president. There's plenty of upbeat material on this one, starting with Ringo Starr's "C'mon Christmas" and including "You Meet the Nicest People at Christmas" by Dinah Shore, "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" by Gary "U.S." Bonds and the beautiful "Miracle of Lights," written and performed by Sandra Bernhard. Of course, there are also a few numbers that may leave you trying to scratch your head and cover your ears at the same time, but, hey, it was just that kind of year.
