Sounds of Christmas

Ken Kessler from the Sounds of Christmas talks to jazz singer and actress Sarah Partridge about her role in Risky Business (with Tom Cruise), her karaoke performance that launched her music career and her album with Janis Ian. She also talks about her Beautiful Minds album, which celebrated amazing women in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. And, of course, they talked about her Christmas album, and her approach to recording Christmas standards alongside a couple of contemporary songs that are on their way to becoming standards.

Welcome to episode 67 of Holly Jolly X’masu! In this episode, I’ll be talking about the Hibari Children’s Chorus’s 1965 album, “Good Child’s Christmas Party.”

How can you not love that album cover?

Although not what I planned, this episode will go down in infamy as my (hopefully only) COVID episode. I tested positive last week and it really kicked my butt. You might be able to hear it in my voice a bit throughout the episode. I’m still on the mend, but I’m hoping to be back to at least 90% in the next day or two, and that I won’t have any delays throughout the month.

This episode and the next might be a little light on biographical content, although that’s partially by design. My next two will be more involved and with everything going on in my life, I needed to pick a couple easier albums for my first two episodes this month. I definitely didn’t need COVID getting in the way.

I hope you enjoyed this episode, COVID notwithstanding. Be sure to listen in next week as I cover the King Orchestra’s “Jingle Bell – Christmas Karaoke Collection.” Then join me later in the month as I cover a pair of phenomenal 1980s compilations. Up first is “Mint Sound’s X’mas Album,” which for my money is the best major label Japanese Christmas compilation of the decade. Then join me on Christmas Day for a virtually unknown minor label compilation. It’s loaded with City Pop and has a fantastic 80s sound that you’re sure to love!

As always, any feedback on this episode would be appreciated. If have any suggestions, or if you’d like to recommend a song or album for a future episode, drop me a line and let me know.

Remember, I’ve added a button to my Ko-fi page. If you’d like to support me one cup of coffee at a time, a donation is only $3. I’ve also opened a Redbubble store. I only have a couple designs up, but keep an eye on it as I’ll be trying to add more. Half of any proceeds or donations received will be donated to support the people of Ukraine, while the rest will be used to purchase new Japanese Christmas music to review for future episodes. You can also find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And if you get a chance, leave me a review on iTunes. Thanks!
