The title may capture the very essence of this man’s musical career, which began very early on and found recognition when he began singing back-up on several Steely Dan albums in the mid-‘70s. He then joined The Doobie Brothers in 1977 as singer, songwriter, and occasional front man before continuing on with a successful solo career. Even after being a five-time Grammy award winner with thirty-five-plus years of doing what he does best behind him, Michael McDonald still has what it takes to deliver. His latest – a Christmas collection – does not disappoint.
With his husky, soulful voice he brings a distinct sound to every song he touches and imprints it with his signature vocal style. This CD is no exception. With traditional Christmas classics and a few new songs in the mix, McDonald gives them all his magical touch to make them an unexpected treat that makes you think you’re hearing them for the very first time, but with that comfortable feeling of nostalgia that makes it seem just right.
The CD contains ten songs that will sure to be added to your playlist shuffles for all of your Christmas parties for years to come. From Silent Night to Deck The Halls to Auld Land Syne you’ll find a new version of an old Christmas favorite on this CD. The title track Through The Many Winters could become a new year-’round favorite.
