When someone says the clue is in the title in this case they couldn’t be more right. This collection of heart-warming numbers creates its own homely, reassuring sense of occasion which makes you want to keep reliving winters festivity all over again. The familiar, resonating strings of Stay K – Crosstown Rendezvous opens proceedings via jazzy reflections and let’s face it, is pretty much faultless. The haunting introspection of Mike Dominico – Mike’s Joint follows, though various theme’s develop as the countdown expands throughout the selection. Vanessa Daou’s beautifully, breathy delivery on – Snow (A Deeper Drift) sits effortlessly beside the joyus Ganga – Forgotten Dreams (feat. Ben Ghazi). And so the story goes. The fireside is equally attended to by Kevin Yost’s piano infused – So Far Away and beats plus rhythms are then picked-up to end via Larry Heard’s Nocturnal Mix of Ananda Project – I Hear You Dreaming, which transports you somewhere else entirely.
