Some of the best known Christmas music from all over the world, recorded in Italy by the Jerry Caringi ensemble.
Apart from ‘Tu Scendi Dalle Stelle’ and ‘Gesu Bambino’ - both of which are excellent versions - the music is not particularly Italian although, of course, the well-known carols are all sung in Italy as much as anywhere else.
What sets this compilation apart, however, is the instrumentation. Jerry Caringi is a well-known Italian-Canadian jazz / rhythm and blues artist who has arranged this music largely on three very Italian instruments - guitar, mandolin and accordion.
If you want gentle background music playing during your Christmas festivities, this is a good disc for you to buy.
