Peggy Duquesnel "All I Ask for Christmas”


I love Christmas time.  The glitter and colors…but most of all..I love Christmas music! I can spend hours looking for the perfect holiday music and what I love most is instrumental.


My choice this year is Peggy Duquesnel’s  All I Ask For Christmas.


This is a  two disc set, disc 1 is instrumental and disc 2 is vocals. There are 12 and 9 tracks respectively.


Let’s start with disc one. Peggy’s jazzy piano is backed by such greats as:


Brian Bromberg on bass
Joe LaBarbera on drums
Brian Kilgore on percussions
Jay Leach on guitar


All twelve instrumentals on this disc are amazing. This is not the traditional playings of "Little Drummer Boy" or "Hark The Herald Angels Sing," Duquesnel has taken the traditional into the present with jazziness and swing, yet she has managed to keep the familiar within the music, so as to bring the song to a newer and more interesting level.


Disc Two: Is where Peggy lets loose with her beautiful vocal style.  Track four is the beautiful "Silent Night."


"Santa Claus is Coming to Town" is done in a whimsical, jazzy style with Peggy’s vocals really matching up wonderfully.
So many great songs on this two disc cd set for everyone to enjoy. I have found my new favorite for this holiday season.
