Just in time to celebrate the holiday season, Tianna Hall and Chris Cortez have released their latest jazz inspired holiday album, Noel.
The album features a unique take on the holiday classics and features the vocal stylings of Hall and Cortez. Noel also features some very classic instrumental stylings during each single on the album. The whole album feels well put together and fits in perfectly with the holiday season.
It is clear that Hall has been around the music scene since she was young, as her sound is developed and shows the musicianship of a truly trained artist. Chris Cortez is a very well known guitarist out of the Houston area and his skilled notes can be heard in every stroke of the guitar.
This album includes some Christmas classics and take on more of a modern sound. Noel also features a great balance of instrument solos and vocal performances.
Stand out tracks on the album include, "We Three Kings," "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" and "Oh Come Oh Come Emmanuel."
Noel reminds everyone that holiday classics are here to stay as well as providing a unique twist on the classics, which can be very refreshing at times.
