This season has been the most hectic that I can remember. I am sure I am not alone in feeling this way. Here is a quick,last minute recommendation to help you calm things down and get in the spirit of the season. Sean Smith's album "Christmas" on Thompkins Square Records. It is a beautiful album of 14 classic Christmas songs and two originals all performed on acoustic guitar by Sean Smith. No syrup, no schmaltz,just wonderful playing that distills the essence of each song. Put it on, sit down, have a drink and relax. You won't even realize you are smiling and humming. Have a merry, mellow Christmas.
