American soprano Renee Fleming's first-ever holiday album celebrates the beloved and iconic Christmas season in New York City. From the holiday windows lining 5th Avenue to the red and green-lit spire of the Empire State Building, the essence of the city at the most wonderful time of year is captured on Christmas in New York. Pop, Broadway and jazz greats Chris Botti, Kurt Elling, Wynton Marsalis, Brad Mehldau, Kelli O Hara, Gregory Porter and Rufus Wainwright join Renée as she lends her sublime voice to hits like Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Silver Bells and other gems, including Central Park Serenade a brand new duet by songwriting legend Diane Warren.
Belgian Pop/Ambient/Electronic group Hooverphonic release their latest album, In Wonderland. On this album you will hear multiple vocals, both male and female, with various timbres that give each song its own character. Yet another eclectic album from national pride Hooverphonic, with melancholy strings as common theme, that again succeeds in coming at us moody, innovative and creatively unfettered.
