Joy: A Holiday Collection
Label: Craft Recordings
A mixture of neo-folk, gentle pop, classic Christmas and funky nostalgia, Jewel's Joy glows. Sultry low notes counter a flattering range, boasting vocals as cool, clear and soprano as a Swiss choirboy ("O Holy Night," "Gloria"). Jewel stands out from the holiday release crowd with originals like "Face of Love" and "Hands (Christmas Version)."
