If you've been wishing for a White Christmas... just like the ones you used to know... your prayers have been heard and answered. And in plenty of time for whatever festivities you might be planning.
Deana Martin is the daughter of the master himself, Dean Martin, and she has long carried on his legacy--and built one of her own--singing the songs the Rat Pack made famous in the sound and style we've all loved ever since.
For this Christmas set, that means nothing but the Christmas songs you know and love--some with hot swingin' and sexy arrangements and some with that easy, relaxed, and sweet sentimentality (for which I believe her father held the original patent). This is a Christmas album the way they used to make them, with classy and classic big band arrangements and vocals that drip like honey from your speakers, tasting every bit as sweet.
If you like your Christmases old school, you'll surely dig "Silver Bells" and "Jingle Bell Rock" featuring the most swinging performances of those tunes ever put to disc. It's nearly impossible not to hear echoes of her father as Deana delivers playful takes on "Winter Wonderland" and "Let It Snow". "I'll Be Home For Christmas" and "The Christmas Song" are appropriately cuddle worthy. And no doubt the album's highlight is the duet with Andy Williams on "White Christmas"--instantly unforgettable.
Check the samples at Amazon or at Deana's web site and I'm sure you'll agree, "White Christmas" by Deana Martin is the first must-buy holiday album of the season.
