Super Hi-Fi: Yule Analog, Vol. 1

If you’re idea of a traditional Christmas is visions of Haile Selassie, then this reggae-fest of a disc might be right up your tree. Two trombones, guitar, bass, piano, kazoos and drums are supplied by a team of Rick Parker, AlexAsher, Jon Lipscomb, Ezra Gale and Madha Siddappa respectively. You get a mix of Jamaica and space age sounds on “We Three Kings” and “Go Tell it On The Mountain” and some hard hitting drum work shakes the mistletoe on “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” Bryan Benninghove’s tenor sax adds to an agonizing read of “Auld Lang Syne” that will definitely make you wish for the good old days, but the rest is not bad at all if you’re celebrating the birth of our Lord in Belize.
