Album Spotlight: Mojo Green - Green Christmas

Today I would like to spotlight a very cool album by a band about whom I have been able to find very little information. According to their MySpace page, "MojoGreen Project is a five piece Funkajazzadelic band bringing the groove from Reno, Nevada." [Edit: or not; see the first comment after this post - seems there is more than one artist with Mojo Green in their name] In 2006, they recorded an album called Green Christmas, which can be downloaded in its entirety from the Internet Archive.

There are very few traditional Christmas songs to be found on Green Christmas, and there are even fewer traditional arrangements of the songs that are on the album. Songs like "Jingle Bells", "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer", "Deck the Halls", and "Frosty the Snowman" are given an upbeat, rocking, bluesy, and altogether amazingly catchy treatment, and are performed with more energy than is normally heard on a Christmas album. They only slow things down momentarily for a couple of instrumental, acoustic guitar-driven versions of "White Christmas" and "Silent Night", both of which are done very beautifully.

All in all, Green Christmas has some of the coolest versions of many of these songs that I have ever heard. If you'd like to hear something a little different this Christmas, then I can't recommend it highly enough. Happy listening!
