Brainerd, Minnesota-raised Linda Eder is presumably no stranger to snow, so she's an ideal candidate to lead this collection of Christmas songs old and new. Her voice is classy and Broadway-oriented, as are most of the arrangements here (stabs of "New York, New York" have been somewhat sacreligiously inserted into the medley of "Here Comes Santa Claus/Santa Claus is Coming to Town"). If you're yearning for the kind of album that the grown-ups used to play to augment the egg-nog and Martinis, then yearn no more.
CHRISTMAS STAYS THE SAME features a couple of originals by the Broadway team of Frank Wildhorn and Jack Murphy (who penned the immensely successful though hardly Yuletide-friendly JEKYLL AND HYDE musical in which Eder has appeared), including the title track and the unapologetically sentimental "Christmas Through a Child's Eyes." Their florid style suits Eder's expressive vocals down to the ground. In a more traditional vein "The Little Drummer Boy" exerts its usual strange fascination, lending itself to pretty much any arrangement, while "Do You Hear What I Hear" gets an attractive and tasteful world music/LION KING treatment. Christmas remains safe and unchanging in Linda Eder's talented and capable hands.
