We put up the tree, and are currently relaxing with some holiday tunes and spirits. Just wondering how the approach and arrival of the holidays affects everyone’s listening. Of course, there will be an increase in holiday related recordings, but do listening sessions increase in frequency? Are more folks involved? Do themed events pop up like Christmas Cocktails and Canapés with Nat King Cole? I’m currently stoking my own holiday spirit with Wynton Marsalis’s “Crescent City Christmas Card” which I discovered in some older Audiogon posts regarding favorite Christmas recordings. It’s making me think I should throw a Big Easy holiday bash one of these days, and start a new tradition.
Eager to hear and steal some ideas, and new ways to appreciate appreciating.
Happy Holidays to all,
