No matter where you are, the Christmas season has its own unique sound. The voices of carolers going from door to door, congregations singing at midnight mass, or the song about grandma’s unfortunate incident with a reindeer are all part of what Christmastime sounds like. In New Orleans, the music reflects the city’s deep love for making age-old holiday traditions new again. Well-known songs are sung with a different feeling, while newly composed songs fondly recall favorite holiday memories. On New Orleans Christmas, Putumayo has captured the unique and vibrant voice of this city with a collection of holiday favorites decked in the blues, jazz and swing flavors for which the Crescent City is famous.
