Best Christmas Album

Celebration by Mel Washington

Staff Pick

Holiday music comes in two varieties: warm and nostalgic, or schmaltzy and awful. Mercifully, Mel Washington’s December 2013 release Celebration is the former, not the latter. Washington channels Sinatra on “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and delivers a surprisingly yuletide-y take on Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” This album will be playing on our stereos again when December 2014 rolls around.
