Music Review: “Miracles: The Holiday Album”


When you think of contemporary jazz, I’m sure Kenny G comes to mind. Especially as the guy who happens to always be on a float at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. This saxophonist has been churning out tunes since 1982, however it wasn’t until 1994 that he put together “Miracles: The Holiday Album,” which went on to sell over 7 million copies and has been played every year on holiday radio stations ever since. Twenty years later, this smooth jazz holiday collection still perfectly provides the soundtrack to your holiday traditions.

Although short, the album has so many high points it’s hard to pick a favorite. The first four songs, “Winter Wonderland,” “White Christmas,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” and “Silent Night” are probably the best on the album, however the rest of the album is certainly worth a listen.

You can find the album on Youtube (check it out below). Play it while you’re setting up the tree, baking cookies, or just while you’re cleaning or doing housework. It will certainly put you in the holiday mood immediately.
