Ahh, the holidays! This time of the year just calls out for some good music. You've already listened to your favorite Christmas carols, the holiday songs from your past, now, this year, try something different.
Blues music may not be your first choice of holiday music, but I think it's a welcome genre and adds a richness to the holiday.
Don't take my word for it. Have a listen to Ray Charles singing Merry Christmas Baby, that song will put you in the perfect bluesy Christmas mood.
