Marcus Anderson – This Is Christmas

The gift of sound is fit for every season when Marcus Anderson comes to play. The saxophonist stands out with This Is Christmas, turning the traditional holiday cheer into something listeners can play throughout the year.    Breaking boundaries of soul and jazz, the tone is set and the vibe is just what one expects from a seasonal release with the reminders of home and family latticed throughout the compilation. Renditions of yuletide favorites such as Oh Christmas Tree, This Christmas and Oh Come All Ye Faithful welcome listeners with cheer and instrumental grace, enhanced by Anderson s natural musical trope.

Every facet of his talented ensemble is enlisted to heighten the experience of the songs we’ve all come to love and enjoy.   What is not expected is the sensuality which Anderson channels to break traditional expectations of jazz-themed Christmas music to deliver an album that can turn any day into a holiday. Play Christmas with Her and Favorite Time of the Year for a romantic evening with someone special- the melodies are perfect for cuddling, whether it be rain, sun or snow. Jingle Jam is another surprise, as Anderson embraces the more funky aspects of his musical background so that you can bring this track to the cookout!   Plug in the tree and light the candelabra because it is officially ignited with This Is Christmas! Clever and exceptionally -mastered, this album brings out the best of every occasion from winter to summer, spring and fall. Charging the senses while keeping you in the mood to celebrate, groove with Marcus Anderson and share the spice of the holiday season any time of year!
