Songs Of Joy And Peace / Yo-Yo Ma & Friends
Yo-Yo Ma's holiday album SONGS OF JOY AND PEACE admirably aims to be all-inclusive by featuring songs from the Christian, Jewish, and Islamic traditions, as well as feel-good popular favorites like "Here Comes the Sun" and "My Favorite Things." Guests include Diana Krall, James Taylor, Joshua Redman, Chris Botti, and Dave Brubeck, among others. The set ranges across religious traditions and styles, but a feeling of open-hearted warmth, along with Yo-Yo Ma's rich, swelling cello, provides the glue that binds this diverse group of musicians and songs.
