Album Notes
From the artist best known for the iconic version of "Santa Baby"* comes a new classic, "The Christmas Song"...
***Made in New York City***
"Known for her smoldering seasonal version of “Santa Baby,” actress, singer Cynthia Basinet releases a jazzy version of “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire).” The beautiful Basinet is a ‘Jaqueline of all trades’ it seems, she keeps herself busy in the performing arts but is also a humanitarian using her music to bring public awareness to environmental issues and the importance of self-reliance… she was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2005 as part of the 1000 Women for the Nobel Peace Price Project. This gorgeous version of Nat King Cole’s holiday nugget was arranged by Tony Bennett’s arranger and pianist Lee Musiker, and while the song features A-List musicians, it’s Ms. Basinet’s approach to the vocals that steals the show! Warm, rich and delightful… Cynthia Basinet’s version of “The Christmas Song” is a must have download this holiday season!" ~SANDY SHORE SmoothJazz Radio
