Y La Bamba – Señor Santa (2012)


Y La Bamba

It’s Christmas! First up, Latin neo-traditionalists Y La Bamba give The Chordettes’ classic whimsy ‘Mr. Sandman’ the full accordion-and-Spanish-guitars treatment. The result is dreamy, sultry and fun. Have a great week everyone. ‘Señor Santa’ will know if you’ve been good (or not).

Vince Guaraldi Trio – Christmas Time Is Here (1965)

YouTube – AmazoniTunes

Last Friday, a friend was a little disappointed in the lack of festivity in my choice of sound. No such accusations this week, surely. This instrumental has been on and off in the Samuel household all Christmas break. I cannot work out whether I connect with this tune because it is embedded as the sound of Christmas itself or because it brings back childhood memories of Charlie Brown at Christmas. I should not think so much. My first resolution. Happy New Year!
