Mary's Boy Child

Merry Christmas all!
I had time to try a couple of new recordings this year. Here's the first using a calypso rhythm as the tune was originally written by Jester Hairston.
I added a touch of steel drum towards the end.

Hi Td. A lovely calypso with some Christmassy sounds. Liked the introduction of the choir and other instruments. A nice change. Merry Christmas and a healthy New year. John

Hi Dave,

I think you have got us all in the Christmas mood! That's a super rhythm and perfect for this tune. Love the voice you have chosen to play this song .. and adding the choir into it worked out very well too. Thanks for posting.

Hi Dave,

A very interesting version of that number, with some good choices of voices that worked very well

All the best, Brian007
