Kenny Ellis
Hanukkah Swings!
Favored Nations

Why should the Gentiles have all the fun? After all there's been plenty great Christmas albums by Jews (Diamond and Streisand anyone?). Eschewing a cantor's gravity, Ellis sings light swingin' traditionals as well as the patriotic-sounding original "Hanukkah Candles," but for this Shlemiel the best Chutzpah comes on such Meshugga deconstructions as "Twas the Night Before Hanukkah" and "Hanu-calypso."
