Free Mayer Hawthorne MP3 – “Christmas Time Is Here”
If you don’t know [mp3com-artist]Mayer Hawthorne[/mp3com-artist], you don’t know one of the grooviest retro-soul singers to hit the scene in the past few years. But here’s a good place to start: a sexy, slinky reading of “Christmas Times Is Here” that’s as smooth as those PJs you buy your best guy or girl.
Though the 32-year old Ann Arbor native calls the likes of [mp3com-artist]Curtis Mayfield[/mp3com-artist] and [mp3com-artist]Isaac Hayes[/mp3com-artist] his primary influences, his jazzy piano and bass take on “Christmas Time Is Here” owes as much to [mp3com-artist]Vince Guaraldi[/mp3com-artist] and [mp3com-artist]Ahmad Jamal[/mp3com-artist] as is does to Motown and Chi-Town.
Hit up Hawthorne’s website after you and take this updated Christmas classic on a sleigh ride around your ears.
