A Jazz Noel (BMG 01934 11460) - 1999
In this reviewer's opinion, A Jazz Noel is the strangest album of the entire catalog.
This is the second of two Windham Hill Holiday records that feature no "Classic" Windham Hill Artists. Amazon reviewers refer to the album as being a fusion of Bottled Kenny G and Elevator Music. Unlike the earlier Winter's Solstice releases, this one failed to hit the RIAA charts, even with Windham Hill Jazz/BMG artists Braxton Brothers and Spyro Gyra featured.
Here's Michael Frank's rendition of Island Christmas and Special EFX's Joyous (An 'interesting' Kenny G and Mannheim Steamroller Fusion?).
