For years, I made Christmas mixtapes for my friends as holiday gifts. I have over 30 Christmas albums, so I could always find some fresh new songs to entertain and amuse. But, I've always dreamed of recording my own Holiday album, and it's time to check it off the bucket list. Will you help me?
Some of the songs we're considering you might now know, but they swing!
- Christmas Night in Sactown* - Louis Armstrong
- The Merriest - June Christy
- I Love the Winter Weather - Fats Waller
- Mistletoe & Holly - Frank Sinatra
- Let's Start the New Year Right - Maguire Sisters
- What Will Santa Claus Say - Louie Prima
- I Want a 5 Pound Box of Money - Pearl Bailey
- A Marshmallow World - Dean Martin
- Baby It's Cold Outside - Ray Charles & Betty Carter
- Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow - Doris Day
- What Are You Doing New Year's Eve - Nancy Wilson
- White Christmas - Bing Crosby
If you support our kickstarter, we'll send you some Holiday Cheer next month and again next year when the album's finished.
I've long been crazy for Christmas music, and have a blog with lyrics to over a hundred Christmas songs. I think you might like it Learn Your Christmas Carols

Risks and challenges
I've already lined up the musicians, they're the same fabulous people that I've collaborated with at our monthly vocal jazz jams and at the Sacramento Jazz Camp.
I don't anticipate any problems with the schedule. I've never made an album before, but I've done lots of organizing or projects and events.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
