BoomerGirl Review: Simply Christmas by Leslie Odom, Jr.
Leslie Odom, Jr., one of the stars of Broadway's "Hamilton" (which I was fortunate enough to see in New York on my 60th birthday last year) has a voice that could melt the coldest heart. Just as melted-buttery-good as Nat King Cole, Tony Bennett, Johnny Mathis and all the greats. This delightfully under-produced album (as Christmas albums go) has only 9 songs, but each one is a gem. Oh, but don't take my word for it. Listen for yourself and, then, just for grins, watch Leslie himself singing "Autumn Leaves" as a special Thanksgiving treat....
Now, do you see why I love him? Why I'm so thankful he's in my life?
Happy Thanksgiving, Leslie! And happy Thanksgiving to you, friends!
