Spirit of The Holidays_[CD quality audio, better sounding than an MP3]
Currently playing on Sirius XM's 'Holiday, Channel 73 and 'Siriusly Sinatra', Channel 71.
Lisa says, "I sat down to record some of my holiday favorites and it turned into 2 CDs and 27 songs. :) Probably because I love the holidays so much".
A recent reviewer says, "Sends a heartwarming message of charm, grace, and elegance. If you decide to bring the lovely Lisa Addeo into your home this Christmas, you'll have a gift to enjoy the entire season.
This CD demonstrates her solid piano chops, in addition to showcasing a few vocals.
I particularly relished her instrumentals; the quiet simplicity of pieces such as There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays sends a heartwarming message of charm, grace, and elegance. I also very much enjoyed White Christmas, an expressive instrumental that highlights the emotions that make the season special, and Addeo's spare--but playful--Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Sweet! Of the vocal numbers, Addeo's breathy Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas is the most compelling. Overall, my favorite number is probably Addeo's excellent, low-key interpretation of John Lennon's amazing Imagine (not a Christmas selection, strictly speaking, but providing a theme that is very appropriate this time of year).
Liberace?! Lisa Addeo is not all about sequins and glitz. Like her mentor, she is a gifted pianist, a passionate performer who clearly loves to entertain. Her Spirit of the Holidays embodies a full range of seasonal favorites, with a few vocals seasoning the instrumental mix. Tasty!" --Carol Swanson (Reviewed in 2008)
