Children’s music star Laurie Berkner released her newest Christmas album, “Another Laurie Berkner Christmas,” which is quite wonderful.
This marks her second career holiday record, and she is joined by such special guests as Suzzy Roche, Lucy Wainwright Roche, and Broadway veteran Norm Lewis.
The album opens with the uplifting “Holly Jolly Christmas,” instantly luring listeners into the festive spirit, and it is followed by “Good King Wenceslas” featuring the living legend Norm Lewis, and “I Live Inside A Snowglobe.”
She picks up the pace with the nonchalant “Up On The Housetop.” Suzzy Roche and Lucy Wainwright Roche collaborate with her on “Here We Come A-Wassailing,” which is a real treat.
“Winter Wonderland” is cheerful and fun, and it continues with a stirring version of “Carol of the Bells.”
“The Twelve Days of Christmas” is soothing and jubilant, and it is followed by “Joy To The World” and “Time To Eat.” “What Child Is This (Greensleeves)” is hauntingly beautiful where the listener can recall a young Judy Collins.
After the infectious “Deck The Halls,” it closes with “Little Tree” and “The Hallelujah Chorus.”
As bonus tracks, it included the dance remix of “Jingle Bells,” as well as the dance remix of “Happy New Year.”
“Another Laurie Berkner Christmas” is available on Apple Music by clicking here. This is the quintessential holiday album to listen to while decorating the Christmas tree, or wrapping up presents. It garners an A rating. Bravo.
