Remembering Christmas is an engaging, low-key holiday album from keyboardist David Benoit. Choosing a selection of traditional carols and contemporary classics, and throwing in the original title track for good measure, the album is warm and joyous, especially when musicians like Dave Brubeck, Michael Franks and Earl Klugh drop by to spread some holiday cheer. It's a good record for relaxing during the hectic moments of the holiday season, and it's one the adults will love more than the children. ~ Rodney Batdorf
