First I want to give you a little background about the band, previous CD releases, and more about It's Santa Claus! Ben Rudnick & Friends have been bringing families, music and fun together in their own, one-of-a-kind “American Roots” style from their first CD release, Emily Songs, in 2000 to their tremendously acclaimed 2009 album, A Frog Named Sam, to this year’s celebration of the band’s 10th anniversary. With countless awards and kudos to their credit, including five Parents’ Choice Awards, Ben Rudnick & Friends focus on providing a common ground where all family members can, without compromise, enjoy a shared musical experience.
It’s Santa Claus! —named for the album’s original title track—is full of holiday cheer and stocking-stuffer priced at only $9.95. In addition to “It’s Santa Claus!,” Ben and the band have recorded seven classic holiday tunes enhanced by the charming twists and turns that come from playing holiday shows for nearly a decade. (Think a mariachi saxophone section on “Jingle Bells” ... ) Songs include “Jingle Bells,” “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” “Let It Snow, “Frosty the Snowman,” “Here Comes Santa Claus,” “Auld Lang Syne,” and “Greensleeves.”
I love finding children's music that is fun, has great rhythm, and doesn't sound like everything else out there! I've also enjoyed listening to the samplers of Ben Rudnick & Friends on their site and can't wait to share additional CDs with my boys because I know they will love songs like Macaroni & Cheese (on The Challenger Baseball CD) and Dads Can Dance (Blast Off CD)! It's Santa Claus includes classic songs with a new twist and great background music that will definitely have you dancing around the house as you decorate this holiday season and will help keep you in the season all the way until Christmas! This CD is suitable for anyone, not just kids and we plan to add it to our array of Christmas CDs that will played over and over again this holiday season!
