New Andre Bisson CD: Rhythm and Blues Christmas

Tired of the usual sappy, low-energy, yuletide tunes? Well local musician Andre Bisson has the solution for you: he recently released, Rhythm and Blues Christmas, a new CD packed with funky, swingin', rockin' holiday delights.

Andre and friends take traditional tunes and add a major dose of R&B. Rudolph, Silent Night (which is anything but), Jingle Bells and more are given a great rump-shaking twist. The Christmas tunes end with a wonderful bluesy version of Please Come Home for Christmas.

As a holiday gift there's something old and something new at the end of the collection: Two bonus tracks - Free Ride Blues from his previous CD, Rhythm and Blues Experience, and a great version of Ain't Too Proud to Beg from the upcoming album Beyond the Covers.

This great yuletide disc is available at their amazing live shows and through cdbaby (CD/Download)
