New Christmas Music from Waterdeep

Waterdeep - The Unusual Tale of Mary & Joseph's Baby

Looking for new Christmas music?

I’ve been enjoying Waterdeep’s new record, “The Unusual Tale of Mary & Joseph’s Baby.”

It’s not a traditional Christmas album; it’s the soundtrack for a musical of the same title. From the Waterdeep site, the songs “take you from Mary & Joseph before their wedding, when Mary gets some stunning news from an angel that she will conceive and give birth to the Son of God. This is a little confusing and unbelievable for Joseph until the Angel visits him as well, confirming the story. Various hijinks ensue.”

This isn’t a record that will appeal to everyone but the songwriting is exceptional. On the whole, it casts the mystery, peril, weirdness, and wonder of the Christmas story in a remarkable and moving way.

The Most Exotic Arrangement of “Take Five” You’ll Ever Hear

In honor of Dave Brubeck, 1920-2012. Hand drums, strings, sitar, and some really fine classical guitar at 2:00 and 3:45.

Thanks Taj Mahal Foxtrot.
