Christmas Music (28 Days Left!)

Keeping in line with yesterday's selection, Kenya from the blog Here's the Thing requested (haha, I like that, it makes me sound like a DJ...which is probably a fun occupation...not as fun as being a mom, but fun just the same) ThePianoGuys version of the Charlie Brown Medley.  Again these performers just look like they have a blast when they're playing.  I really like that about them.



Thinking about Charlie Brown music reminded me of Wynton Marsalis (stay with me now, I have a CD of Charlie Brown music he performed that is fantastic!). When I think of Jazz, in addition to Marsalis, I think of Michael Bublé.  And when I think of Michael Bublé , I inevitably think of Harry Connick, Jr., one of my all-time favorite performers...and that makes me think of his Christmas duet with Kim Burrell.

And before this turns into a 'If You Give a Mouse a Cookie' kind of post, I'll post a song from each of them.

  8. I love these!

    Oooh Buble! :)

    And one day I will learn to play that Charlie Brown song on the piano.

    I heard my brother in law played a little of it over the Thanksgiving and it was pretty cool.
