Notes and Editorial Reviews

Fans of Chanticleer and those who have their classic 1995 Christmas release, Sing We Christmas, will undoubtedly want their latest holiday recording released for the 2007 season. Let it Snow swings a whole lot more than their previous releases as they are backed by a jazz band with elaborate orchestrations. The variety of styles along with the signature "orchestra of voices" sound are just we've come to expect from this remarkably talented group.
