The best thing about Christmas is still the memory of it - a thesis that Tom Gaebel, the last great gentleman among the singers of the Republic, emphatically supports on his Swinging Christmas album. A lavish musical festival with everything that goes with it:
Great songs in great arrangements, sung incomparably and seasoned with a lot of joy and a little melancholy. The musical delicacies that confectioner Gaebel, lovingly draped on his sleigh, steers through the ear canals with swinging ease, range from classics such as "Frosty The Snowman" and "Rudolph The Rednose Reindeer" to completely new compositions - the perfect gift for the 5th. Christmas holiday according to the so-called Tom Gaebel calendar.
It will come as no surprise to Tom Gaebel connoisseurs that “A Swinging Christmas” is musically a kind of window into the past, because like no other in Germany, the crooner from Cologne represents the era of great American light music from the 50s to 70s.
Let yourself be taken on a wonderful journey into a time that may never have existed, but which is remembered all the more fondly for that very reason.
