"Jingle Bell Rock"

Here's a wrap-up of new Christmas releases. Truth be told, most Chritmas recordings don't rise much above the creative level o "Jingle bells,Batman smells, Robin laid an egg..."The old tunes still hold up-is there any prettier song than "Have Yourself a Merry Litte Christmas"? But most currt artists have had a hard time coming up with new holiday standards. It doesn't mean they don't try. Here's a rundown of some of this year's major Christmas releases: Kenny Carr, "Silent Night/O Holy Night". Carr, of his group The Tigers, creates trombone-laced arragements that remind you of a New Orleans jazz. The single only make you long for more. This is a fine sample of Charlotte's most distinctive music. This recording gets the top 3 and 1/2 stars. By : Tommy Tomlinson - The Charlotte Observer
