GERI ALLEN – “A CHILD IS BORN” (Solo piano versions of Holiday classics, and some
others, with some vocal tracks).

PopMatters.com (Josh Langhoff): Geri Allen’s mostly-solo, mostly-jazz-piano album A Child Is Born flows through traditional Christmas songs and hymns with much facility, some invention, and a couple of surprises. Combining all three is “Angels We Have Heard On High”, that most contrapuntal of carols, which in Allen’s hands resembles a Bach three-part invention, albeit one with Keith Jarrett’s harmonic language.  Pleasant enough when it pops up in a holiday playlist shuffle, this album raises money for Newark’s YWCA and Bethany Baptist Church.

TONY BENNETT – “THE CLASSIC CHRISTMAS ALBUM” (As the title implies, all your
holiday favorites performed by legendary crooner).
