Christmas Time

Christmas time is for all people, Christmas time is for you
Christmas time is for all peaceful, Christmas time is fun too

There was a Nicholas in the fourth century, he lived in Turkey too
He was a nice guy, gave out the candy, and money to brides too

Christmas time is for all people, Christmas time is for you
Christmas time is for all peaceful, Christmas time is fun too
'Been a long long time since the sleigh ride, I love the mountains with you
Christmas time is for all people, Christmas time is for you


I knew a Santa Claus in a department store, he was a nice guy too
I told him what I want, he gave me candy, Christmas morning was not blue

Who wants a fairy tale, who wants a good time, I cannot make it for you
You know the story, you know the ending, tonight is Silent Night too

Christmas time is for all people, Christmas time is for you
Christmas time is for all peaceful, Christmas time is fun too
'Been a long long time since the sleigh ride, I love the mountains with you
Christmas time is for all people, Christmas time is for you

Christmas time, Christmas time
Christmas time, Christmas time is for you

All year long, all year long

Half of the CD are new Christmas anthems, a couple of them quite catchy.
Jingle Bear Boogie rocks! Which surprised me, in a way, because I was expecting more of a Boogie Woogie Bugle Bear thing. But that's how it is when we attempt to experience artists we haven't heard before by just looking at the cover and reading the track list. The cover said jazz to us, but the product completely rocks. It rocks in a way that reminds us a little bit of Emerson, Lake & Palmer, at least in its mood. Well, there's been a dearth of cool rocking Christmas records in the past couple of years, so this meets a market need, a need for over-wrought vocals and expansive riffing. And expansive riffing and over-wrought vocals is what Charles Tapp delivers here. Early on, my favorite was Every Day's A Holiday, not only because it has some of the best riffing, and not only because it is a brand new Christmas tune, and not only because of its lyrics, which seem to capture something positive and true about the holiday season. It also has some nice pop hooks, and those I am truly a sucker for.

In fact, this is a rock trio, consisting of Charles Tapp (vocals, keys, drums), Alec Fuhrman (lead guitar) and Steve Evans (bass). Though they keep it pretty much on a rock footing, On their O Come All Ye Faithful/God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen medley, they unleash the saxophones of peace (sax by Kevin Ledbetter), taking us (at least spiritually) in a smoother, somewhat jazzier direction. (Not that I'm complaining about all the rock!). But even here, the saxophone pacifies, but it doesn't break up the mood.

Half of the CD are new Christmas anthems composed by Charles Tapp, a couple of them quite catchy. After Every Day's A Holiday , my favorite is probably Christmas Plateau, the moodiest song on the disc, except possibly for Silent Night where the guitars changed from expansive riffing to an almost new age with a hint of flamenco flavor, which, I guess, is a close to doing "silent" as rockers are likely to do.
