Ho! Ho! Ho! those lovely folks at Wah Wah have unleashed another assault on the festive songbook with this nice three track EP fresh out for Yuletide! Scrimshire’s take on Donny’s This Christmas ticks all the elaborately festooned seasonal boxes while the label’s first lady, Stac, comes through with a characteristically soulful performance on the stripped back, bluesy take on the Phil Spector / Darlene Love classic, Please Come Home. The EP rounds out with pianist Stephen McCleery’s superb melancholic, Keith Jarrett styled, take on the classic Christmas tune, We Three Kings. It’s an exceptional, moving version of the song that will be played chez SoulCuts throughout the entire season.
