Lea Delaria – Be a Santa ( Warner Classics )   

Recording Mixing & Mastering

"I know, I know – but wait until you hear it. From the opening scat version of “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” to the final, not-quite-bebop “White Christmas”, this is the Christmas album for 2010, and not an uneasy or mawkish moment in the whole 11 numbers. Lea DeLaria is a good jazzsinger who knows precisely how far you can go in swinging a straight song without tearing it apart. Good solos, too, by some of Britain’s A-team, including trumpeter Martin Shaw and Anthony Kerr on vibes, and simple but delicious arrangements by Janette Mason."
