Review of the new Alexander’s album “Christmas Tales”. VG, Nov. 25th 2012

From paper issue of VG from 25.11.12. Internet version here.

 The Christmas Album: jazz
Alexander Rybak
“Christmas Tales”
(Grappa)

Sober, but somewhat predictable choice.

“Chestnuts roasting on an open fire” is Alexander Rybak’s sonorous start on this CD, and the warm atmosphere of Mel Torn’s “The Christmas Song” runs through Rybak’s Christmas album with a heartwarming theme, where his two own new Christmas songs fit in with the rest.

Beyond this, the repertoire is really quite predictable and interpreted to death, but with Rybak and partners tapping into what might have been just another Christmas album with all the old American hits, through fine and soft string arrangements. Rybak himself has the same correct hesitation in his voice, making “Christmas Tales” into a Christmas album that will be a nice complement to the increasingly large family of Christmas albums.

Best song: “The Christmas Song”.
