Howard Hanger Jazz Fantasy – Christmas

This is my first review on Waxidermy and I thought what better to do on December 25th but talk about “Christmas”, by The Howard Hanger Jazz Fantasy– a record that gives us some of the most unusual sounds of the season. O Come, O Come Immanuel is an eerie synth passage straight out of a science fiction movie. Close your eyes while listening to Unto Us A Child is Born and you might find yourself at the Main Street Electrical Parade. What Child is This  is a subtle, yet well crafted use of electronic instruments, and along with the vocal number Heavenly Light, makes for an experience that bends the boundaries of a Holiday album.
