The everlasting and ever versatile Grammy winning singer, songwriter delivers an impromptu mini medley while at rehearsal back in December 2019. Watley has always said jazz is a favorite genre since she was a little girl with Vince Guaraldi’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas” her all time tops for holiday listening. “For my kids and I, it’s not officially the holiday season or Christmas time until we watch the classic special and play the soundtrack, which stays on repeat.”
Get in the holiday spirit and enjoy the brief video with Watley and keyboardist Roland Hamilton.
Holiday vibes my favorite Christmas song : favorite holiday album “Vince Guaraldi:: A Charlie Brown Christmas” and “Silent Night” reminds me of being a little girl looking at the color wheel. I’m more of a fan of low key holiday songs..instrumentals not much on over-singing..really more of a vibe of chill, fireplace, warm cocoa and like slipping your feet into warm fuzzy slippers.
This was at rehearsal with my fellas including Roland Hamilton on keys 🎹impromptu on break! I asked who knew any Christmas songs as we went to break getting ready for Art Basel in Miami – only Roland said yes and so we did this casually for fun. Sometimes this season can be so hectic and full of frenzy and often sadness for many as well..I hope this brings a minute and a half of joy.
Thank you to Mervin Malone Jr. for uploading “My Love, Santa Claus.” Recorded exclusively for a Japanese release with Cyber X in 2003. This was the first time I’d done ‘trance’ the various genres I’ve explored over the years.
This is stark contrast to my jazzy chilled out rendition of “Christmas Time Is Here” from A Charlie Brown Christmas – my favorite holiday album.
