Liz Says, Have a Tropical Holiday!
From Oscar Castro-Neves's exquisite rendition of "Ave Maria," which opens the collection, to Gilson Peranzzetta's closing "What Child Is This?" every tune is one golden, euphonic treat after another. And what a great variety in between. There's Joyce's playful "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," plus traditional classics like Dori Caymmi's "O Little Town of Bethlehem" and Ivan Lins's "White Christmas." There's even a South American flavored "Dance of the Sugarplum Fairies" in Global's "Dance Natahl." Every song is just really beautiful and relaxing and pleasant.
So break open the rum, and whether you warm it for a toddy or mix it with tonic over ice and throw in a lime wedge, with "A Brasilian Christmas," you're good to go this holiday season. Boas Festas, everyone!
