Mannheim Steamroller, led by that inimitable and tireless musical observer of holidays Chip Davis, has a plethora of Christmas albums under its belt. This 2007 release is another quality entry in the canon, featuring spirited instrumental versions of classics like the disco-fied "Frosty the Snowman" and a sweet, cocktail piano rendition of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." Johnny Mathis provides gorgeous guest vocals on the title track, and Olivia Newton-John also makes a lovely appearance, utilizing an operatic voice that fans may be surprised to hear.
