Despite the seventy degree temperatures of a very unusual Indian Summer, the arrival of the CD ‘We Three Strings’ means that Christmas has come early to the United Kingdom and to Smooth Jazz Therapy. The first of what is sure to be a crop of seasonal music offerings, ‘We Three Strings’ has quality written all over it and is further enhanced by the fact that both its sound and its track listing is a little out of the ordinary. Different for several reasons this collection of Christmas classics played by three distinct guitarists offers up a combination of smooth, Spanish and Latin grooves over twelve choice cuts. Those taking part are renowned world musician and Spanish guitar virtuoso Johannes Linstead, flamenco luminary Tomas Michaud and rising smooth jazz star Bryan Lubeck. That said the production of the album is so sympathetic to these varying influences that the end result is the merging of styles into something that is warm, comforting and uniquely all about Christmas.
