Nancy LaMott's Just in Time for Christmas is a clever combination of popular holiday favorites and traditional carols, all delivered in her patented style. While Michael Feinstein stands out with his guest appearance on "Baby, It's Cold Outside," LaMott remains the true star, thanks to her subtle, engaging arrangements, all of which make for a truly fine holiday album. ~ Rodney Batdorf
