If you’re looking for sweet and syrupy Christmas music, this is not the CD for you. He is Born is a very different instrumental Christmas recording. The songs are guitar driven, jazz arrangements of traditional holiday music arranged with a latin feel.
While the CD begins with an acoustic version of “He is Born” that conveys an intimate feel, it quickly moves into Hark the Herald with an electric guitar and latin beat. The songs incorporate elements from genres such as the samba (O, Come, All Ye Faithful) and bossa nova (Angels We Have Heard on High). The mix of pop, jazz, and latin sounds combines well to provide festive holiday music.
