Jane Monheit
The Season

Monheit brings a breathy innuendo to "This Christ-mas" when she purrs "This Christmas will be / A very special Christmas / For me, yeah." One wonders here what Monheit has in mind for the celebration of Christ's birth, but the Immaculate Conception isn't it. Much of the rest of the album is more straightforward and wholesome, including the G-rated-with-strings "Merry Christmas Darling," the hard-swinging "The Man With the Bag" and the sentimental ballad "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."
