There's More To A Merry Little Christmas Than Garland

When it comes to Christmas it may be that all the best songs have been written and all the best covers have been covered but now and then something magical restores the faith. A recent example of this arrived on a 2011 blues Christmas compilation, released by fabled label Verve Records, called ‘Noel! Noel!! Noel!!!’ Lots of exclamation marks but they were well intentioned and when you listen in you’ll understand that they were also well deserved. With well-respected composer Michael Legrand at the controls and a bevy of contemporary artists performing it took a blues singer from Athens, Georgia to steal the show (sorry Iggy). Quite simply Madeleine Peyroux’s ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ was a step up in class from the majority of Christmas music released in the new century. While Legrand’s orchestra is faultless Peyroux’s vocals somehow recall a time when releasing a Christmas record was the pinnacle of a career as opposed to a chance to milk the annual cash cow. What is most surprising is that ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ was Peyroux’s second festive recording (the first being an understated version of Joni Mitchell's 'River' with K.D. Lang from her 2006 album 'Half The Perfect World'), but surely we can expect more from a singer for whom a Christmas Eve soundtrack would surely be something she could illuminate.
