This is a perfect collection for New Yorkers or those who are just fans of the Big Apple.

Backed by an illustrious group of artists providing vocal and instrumental support, she offers 13 holiday standards . . . best of all is a collaboration with Rufus Wainwright on "In the Dark Midwinter," a gorgeous setting of a Christina Rossetti poem by the English composer Harold Edwin Darke.

. . . a stunning, velvety voice . . .

. . . beautiful music . . .

The opera star delivers a lively, thoroughly adult Christmas album that leans decidedly jazz. Her way with melody is assured, and she truly swings in several numbers . . . Fleming also has a gorgeous duet on "In the Bleak Midwinter" with singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright.

Soprano Fleming always classes up the joint. And this disc of sophisticated Big Apple jazz -- with cameos by Rufus Wainwright, Wynton Marsalis, Brad Mehldau and more -- is no exception.

. . . "Christmas in New York" ist der feierlich-schmissige Soundtrack für Festtage . . .

. . . eine Weltklasse-Sopranistin, die ihr Organ passgenau auf die Atmosphäre der hier versammelten Weihnachtsklassiker zuschneidet. Im Duett mit Gregory Porter gerät "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" zur gefühlvollen Ballade, beim "Slide Ride" sorgt Trompeter Wynton Marsalis für zusätzliche Dynamik. Ein ebenso beschwingtes wie beseeltes Album.
