Fresh and evocative holiday jazz. WINTER is an instant classic and a CD you may just want to listen to all year round. Christie McCarthy's expressive vocals are in the laid back style of Carmen McRae, and the band features jazz veterans Kevin Mummey, Cindy Browne and Greg Sankovich. McCarthy's star is on the rise. Last holiday season she was featured alongside Norah Jones and Diana Krall on Sharper Image's Sultry Sirens compilation CD. In addition, she has won several songwriting awards. Check out her CD of original music, Everyday Real, on CDBaby.
