THE CALIFORNIA GUITAR ALBUM ‘A Christmas Album’ (Inside Out, 2002)

The second album by this trio this year and one with an obvious seasonal flavour. It contains some very different interpretations of established Christmas tunes such as `Jingle Bells', `Silent Night' and `God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen'. The guitar playing is superb, none more so than the reworking of `Merry Xmas Mr Lawrence', a track that stands out on this CD. Other highlights are `Greensleeves' which again features sublime acoustic guitar playing. Apart from the guitars there is only some sax and bells but the songs feel fuller, a case where less is more.

A very welcome change from all those tired old Christmas compilations that get wheeled out very year. Perfect music for your Christmas celebrations and a great way to chill out. With a bit of airplay and exposure this could be a Christmas winner as anyone can enjoy this CD regardless of whether you like rock music or not.
