O’s Notes: The Accent is an international vocal sextet featuring Jean-Baptiste Craipeau (tenor-France), Simon Akesson (tenor-Sweden), Danny Fong (tenor-Canada), Andrew Kesler (tenor-Canada), James Rose (baritone-UK) and Evan Sanders (bass-USA). They add instrumental accompaniment with Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band, a rhythm section trio, and The Budapest String Orchestra, each playing on two selections. These classic tunes are rejuvenated with this team leading to a recording that is“Christmas All This Way,“one to keep in the changer this season! It’s a ïvinyl length’ 39 minutes but each of the ten songs is solid.
