Holiday Music: Yo-Yo Ma

Someone recently asked what is my favorite holiday music. My instant answer was Bing Crosby's White Christmas, an album we listened to throughout the holidays when I was a kid.

My new answer is Songs of Joy and Peace by Yo-Yo Ma and Friends. On this CD the outstanding Yo-Yo Ma is joined by Alison Krauss, Spanish guitarists Sergio and Odair Assad, Cuban saxophonist Paquito D'Rivera and others. Great music.

I still love to sing along with Bing, but there is something about a cello . . .
