Final blog for 2013 as Mo Jazz is the way to groove for every December holiday
The 1994 artwork features a neatly decorated wreath.
On this Motown Record Company label straight out of Los Angeles, some smooth jazz artists that were new to the scene at that time included Ronee Martin and Frank McComb. Eric Reed and Norman Brown also contribute with some timely carols, as does the Wayne Johnson Trio and J. Spencer.
But it is the last two songs that are worth displaying here as I close out 2013 in the blogging world.
Pete Escovedo doing his take on Jose Feliciano’s “Feliz Navidad” and the same song that Sergio Mendes and Brasil ’66 did, here is Terra Sul’s version of “The Christmas Song” are not to be missed.
Copies of this CD should be available online, but sorry–no YouTube clips of each carol were found.
I would like to give very special and huge thanks to all of my fans for enjoying the blogs and giving their comments each and every week when situations were timely and proper to call for such cool commentary.
I plan to do the same for 2014–with hopefully the chance to profile new and upcoming artists which was sadly missing in 2013. I am also in the planning stages of putting together a very special surprise come World Cup soccer/futbol time for those frantically preparing for the world’s most popular sporting event this summer (outside of the United States, where a true winter wonderland will be seen for the first time come Super Bowl week in New Jersey of all places come early February).
More details on that as we get closer.
As a timely yuletide bonus, I included some liner notes from a holiday album that I profiled in December 2012. Enjoy:
Season’s Greetings to you and yours, or cumprimentos da estação para você e os seus.
