O’s Notes: This is a warm trip through the traditional Holiday ballads featuring the piano mastery of Geri Allen. Most of the music is solo piano but there are infusions of voice and minor instrumental accompaniment along the way that add color and depth. Geri’s percussive attack on the keys for “Little Drummer Boy” is spot on and all of her arrangements are unique making this CD easy to enjoy.
