Music Review: Chris Pasin and Friends – ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’
Patricia Fennell has got such a Diana Krall vibe going that any advertisers upset they can no longer hire Patti Wicks when they want a Krall doubler should look Fennell up. In fact this sounds so much like the kind of Christmas record Krall would make if she didn’t have to deal with the commercial pressures a major label will put on you that real jazzbos will find this a natch. In fact, all the jazzbos on board here are cats that stand behind and to the side of the greats making them sound great so you have the added bonus of cats that know what they are doing pushing the boundaries of creativity without ever getting precious about it. It’s 92 degrees in Chicago today so it’s not too early to start thinking Christmas thoughts. Uh,…hot stuff throughout.
