    Botti's understated trumpet is soulful and stirring. Some of the arrangements are very cool and fresh. We are big Botti fans and have seen him live. Highly recommend these holiday arrangements.

    This album captures the peace and tranquility of the holiday season. CB is the most talented trumpet player out there. I have seen him live and he's incredible and he tells stories about his songs. He is a true entertainer. Please listen closely to Ave Maria - track two. The choir is absolutely heavenly and by that I mean they sing so beautifully that this song sounds as if it is sang by angels themselves! I highly recommend this album! Well done Mr. Botti!

    CB is such a wonderful piece of my evening... There is nothing better than listening to the sweet melodic sounds of a masterful horn after a long days work. Most relaxing! Bravo my friend... Bravo...

    REVISION TO THE ORIGINAL REVIEW: Unfortunately, Sony has pulled the 2002 version of December from iTunes, now making it impossible to download a "complete" playlist of the 15 tracks that are associated with the "December" recordings. Thanks to the many people who read my original review, and took the time to give it a "thumbs up". Maybe we'll get lucky, and Sony will repackage all of Botti's Christmas music in one collection. If we're really lucky, maybe there will be a new Botti Christmas collection! ------------------------ ORIGINAL REVIEW: I'm a HUGE Botti fan, been to his concerts, own all his CDs, etc. Like any real fan, I own the 2002 release of "December". And, it's a great holiday CD. But there's more to this story...... When I saw the 2006 version of his "December" CD in the stores, I figured that Sony/BMG had simply rereleased it with new artwork. Not exactly..... The 2006 version has two tracks ("Ave Maria" and "I Really Don't Want Much For Christmas") which are not on the earlier release. But, Sony/BMG -- for whatever reason -- pulled two tracks from the 2002 disk when they released the 2006 version ("Perfect Day" and "Hark the Hearld Angels Sing" are the omitted selections). If you already own the earlier version, you can download the two new tracks from iTunes. If you buy this "new" version, search for the ORIGINAL version on iTunes (it's here -- I just checked) and download the two missing tracks. {{Just to confuse things more: there are two versions of the original DECEMBER album on iTunes -- one that's listed as "partial", and one that's the full album. You have use the one that's priced at 12.87 to access both missing tracks}} After you download the two missing tracks (depending on which album you originally buy), make a playlist with 15 tracks, and enjoy the REALLY COMPLETE Chris Botti "December" experience". Yes. you wind up paying about two more bucks for the missing tracks, but I personally think it's worth it. And DON'T blame iTunes for this fiasco . . . the gurus at Sony/BMG are to blame. I have no idea why Sony/BMG's crack team of marketers did this to Chris' album. But, thanks to iTunes, a Botti fan can buy the appropriate tracks and assemble all of Chris' Christmas tunes into one complte holiday playlist. Enjoy! BigGym

    Awesome Christmas cd, albeit a bit melancholy. His version of Ave Maria is hauntingly Botti-ful.
