spruce it up (2006)

My favorite tune on the record is Snow Wonder I Love You, penned by Foster. I rank this one right up there with the 1949 Academy Award winning song Baby It’s Cold Outside. … Grab an eggnog, cuddle up with your honey and relax to this wonderful CD. When you get to the last two tracks turn off all but the Christmas tree lights, turn to your sweetheart and say, I love you.

— Joe Montague

Sparkly seasonal sounds scintillate as Foster delivers her fourth album for the fourth consecutive calendar year. Featuring nine songs, this project includes innovative arrangements of Frosty the Snowman, The First Noel, Joy to the World and I’ll Be Home for Christmas along with three sparkly originals. Produced and engineered by Wes Caswell, this collection features the instrumental talents of Kevin Andrews (flute/drums), Glenn Durksen (upright bass), Sandy Foster (keys), Matt Day (keys) and Wes Yaciuk (guitar). Designed to reflect the simplicity, symbolism, and spirit of Christmas, this album continues to offer swing, Latin, ballads and blues in the tasteful arrangements listeners have come to expect.
