If you’re looking to start your Christmas in style with a smooth, jazz take on some familiar Christmas classics, then we have just the artist for you! Michael Tinholme and his Band of Legends are here to bring us ‘It’s Christmas Time’, an album that is filled with joy and nostalgia, taking some wonderful old favourites and breathing new life into them. Out now, it’s an album that will help make your Christmas complete.
Starting off with ‘Silver Bells’, a track that is introduced with a piano that softly plays before a percussion gives Tinholme the space he needs to draw listeners in with a vocal performance that blows you away. Moving into the next track, ‘Sleigh Ride’, Tinholme takes on a classic that starts off with excited children, giving that feeling of Christmas joy as Tinholme, again, sings brilliantly.
Letting the rest of the album play, allowing other classics such as ‘Moonlight in Vermont’ and ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’ to play without interruption, it’s obvious to us that Tinholme has added so much to these songs with his take, with each track having a unique feel in jazz that does justice to the originals.
With jazz, Christmas songs and family being themes of the album, ‘It’s Christmas Time’ is definitely one to add to the playlist this year. Adding Christmas spirit into your home, this brilliant album is all you’ll need to welcome in the festive season. Out now, make sure you waste no time and get it as soon as you can!
