Their Christmas album "December Breeze" is a tasty mix of easy listening, light jazz versions of such holiday classics as Silent Night, original tunes, an Afrikan/ Klezmer inspired rendition of "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen," and two songs by veteran singer/ recording artist Mark Kershner, who lends his crystal clear voice to a Sammy Cahn update of "There's No Place Like Home" and Thad Jones' classic jazz ballad "A Child is Born."This CD prompted an invitation for Another Dave to perform at the White House in Washington, D.C. (which they did) and is listened to year round by those who enjoy its relaxing feel.Their 2nd album, D.C.
