Luther Vandross Christmas Albums

This is Christmas

1995: This is Christmas

With his first holiday album, Luther Vandross conjures up a Christmas spent in front of the fire with your loved one. This dreamy album features ten holiday classics that ooze romance and class. The orchestrations are lush during traditional carols such as O Come All Ye Faithful, but the simple piano accompaniment of With A Christmas Heart is equally powerful. Vandross’s own composition Every Year, Every Christmas (co-written with Richard Marx) is soulful and moving, while the surprise of the album is a jazzed-up version of show tune My Favourite Things. The record is not all laid-back soul however, with The Mistletoe Jam sure to have listeners up and dancing.

Home for Christmas

2002: Home for Christmas

This short, eight track album features mostly songs from Vandross’s earlier holiday release. The few new additions include renditions of What the World Needs Now and Little Miracles. As always, Vandross’s silky voice captures the beauty of these holiday songs, but the album feels essentially like an abridged version of its predecessor.
