Review of Cool Yule

I have to admit, Aimee Mann does not spring to mind as a Christmas music kinda gal, nor does the Hawaiian born Bette Midler, come to think of it. But they, along with emotive Canadian singer/songwriter Sarah McLachlan, and a few new-to-me ringers, make for a fine and enjoyable change of pace from standard holiday fare. Features unpredictable song offerings, personal holiday musings, and original material ?? McLachlan points out the word Christmas makes for a tough rhyme. Steven Allen?s ?Cool Yule? swings warmly in Bette?s version, and Aimee Mann doesn?t say anything bad about Santa even though he?s a man. Seriously, something just a little different from usual Christmas fare, and a good pick for a holiday-stretch evening.
