Reviewed by Tony Cummings

Todd Collins is one of Nashville's top producers so his name on the sleeve together with co-producer Eric Lautenbach gave this reviewer a certain level of expectation not normally associated with a track listing which offers all the Yuletide suspects ("Away In A Manger", "First Noel", "Angels We Have Heard On High", "Silent Night"). What gives this re-issue its fairly high square rating is the arrangements, where jazz guitar and wistful synth washes blend in a mellow late night groove. Vocals are limited to some back-in-the-mix aahs and oohs. All in all, classy instrumentals which neatly avoid being either Christmas corn or music for elevators.
