The cover artwork for this gem reads, “Truth Revolution Records PresentsTogether: Musical Warmth For Winter Holidays.” I love the community of artists that brothers Zaccai and Luques Curtis have pulledtogether on their Truth Revolution Records label. It’s a musical family that shines on this disc, the most beautiful and original holiday recording of the year. The TRR roster and friends take fine turns, and plenty of risks, with old classics and some very cool originals. Trumpeter Nick Roseboro’s take on “Twelfth Century Carol” burns the tradition out of traditional. Little Johnny and Natalie Fernandez turn your holidays into an island dance party with a fantastic version of the Puerto Rican holiday classic “Hasta Aquí Llegamos.” The Curtis Brothers deliver a shiver-and-sigh original titled “Let Them Be Children,” featuring Albert Rivera’s inspired tenor saxophone artistry. Sarah Elizabeth Charles has a voice you’ll certainly be hearing a lot of in the future, as she proves on “Toyland.” Alto saxophonist Kris Allen melts into the groove on “O Come O Come Emanuel.” Giovanni Almonte and Reinaldo De Jesus bring their own lyrics and conga-driven flavor to “My Favorite Things.” And just try not to move to Mitch Frohman’s “Reunion Mambo.” Together has 16 tunes, and I’ll be playing them all this Christmas. Feliz Navidad to the TRR family, and thanks for the perfect gift.
