Just in Time for Christmas
Just In Time For Christmas CD From ChristmasReviews.com Reviewed August 2000.....Andrew Driscoll has a beautiful voice, and this Broadway inspired offering is a fitting showcase for it. Sweetly accompanied by Adam Walsh on piano, Driscoll lays out a wonderful assortment of holiday gems. Although he chooses to lead with the quirky What Can You Get a Wookie For Christmas (When He Already Owns a Comb), I was much more impressed with his more traditional take on the season. His rendition of It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year was Driscoll in his element. Lyrical and musical, it is a real toetapper. I was also impressed with the title number, performed as a duet with Debbie Arnott. It is characterized by a modern stage-inspirational quality that I've always loved. And Mel Torme's The Christmas Song is another highlight, perhaps the most upbeat arrangement of the old Chestnut I can remember. This is a fun record, for traditionalists and the avant garde alike. If Driscoll isn't burning up the Broadway stage, I don't know why.
