O’s Notes: If you like harmonized vocals, you’ll be thrilled with this seasonal outing from the Uptown Vocal Jazz Quartet. They are Ginny Carr, Robert McBride, Holly Shockey and Lane Stowe with musical support from a fine team that includes vibraphonist Chuck Redd. Lyrics are mostly in English, but we also enjoyed “L ’Amour Nous Entoure Ce Soir” in French. Other highlights are “I’ve Got Love To Keep Me Warm” and “Santa Dear, Where’s Mine?” These Holiday arrangements are jazzy and can be enjoyed year-round making this a step above your average seasonal sampler.
