Chicago Christmas: What's It Gonna Be Santa?
It's appropriate that Chicago's 25th album would focus on December 25th; THE CHRISTMAS ALBUM was helmed by E Street Band mainstay Roy Bittan, and was certified Gold upon its 1998 release. Five years later the legendary band returned to the studio with producer Phil Ramone to add 6 new tracks to the original 14 and create WHAT'S IT GONNA BE, SANTA? With horn arrangements that any fan of the group's '70s hits will love, the Rhino collection has the polish listeners expect from a Chicago album, and a little something more – call it the Christmas spirit. Shared vocal and instrumental showcases allow every member a chance to shine and the band sounds like they're having a great time on all these recordings, with “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!,” “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Jolly Old St. Nicholas” among the many highlights. Put WHAT'S IT GONNA BE, SANTA? underneath the Christmas tree of your favorite music lover this year!
