CD Review - It's Santa Claus

About the CDBen Rudnick & Friends have been bringing families, music and fun together in their own, one-of-a-kind, “American Roots” style from their first CD release in 2000 to their tremendously acclaimed 2009 album,  A Frog Named Sam, to this year’s celebration of  the band’s 10th anniversary.   With countless awards and kudos to their credit, including five Parents’ Choice Awards, Ben Rudnick & Friends focus on providing a common ground where all family members can, without compromise, enjoy a shared musical experience.

Since the band’s creation back in 2000, Ben Rudnick & Friends have wrapped up each busy year by playing December holiday shows -- taking the spirit of the season and turning it into fun energy.  And every year they’ve been asked, “Do you guys have a holiday CD?” The answer has always been “no,” until now.   Ben and the band have taken their trademark “fun for all” attitude and finally recorded the oft-requested holiday CD.
It’s Santa Claus!—named for the album’s original title track—is full of holiday cheer and stocking-stuffer priced at only $9.99.   In addition to “It’s Santa Claus!,” Ben and the band have recorded seven classic holiday tunes enhanced by the charming twists and turns that come from playing holiday shows for nearly a decade.   Songs include “Jingle Bells,” “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” “Let It Snow, “Frosty the Snowman,” “Here Comes Santa Claus,” “Auld Lang Syne,” and “Greensleeves.”
At once classic and adventurous, this is sure to be a holiday favorite for years to come. Songs may be sampled at

My Take on the CDTis CD has a great mix of instrumental and vocal blends that brings forth a great album. As a person who really enjoys christmas music, what I liked most was the eclectic bloend of jazz like insturmentals and melodic tones that allowed me and my family to simply sit back and relax and enjoy the music. The only bad thing was that I would have loved to have had more songs on the CD.
