Rebecca Angel delivers an absolutely wonderful rendition of “Santa Baby.” Reggie Washington gets it started on bass, and when the rest of the band kicks in, Rebecca offers a bit of gentle scat before delivering the song’s first line. I love that line, by the way: “Santa baby, slip a sable under the tree for me.” Santa had better hurry if he plans on getting me a fur coat because soon he won’t be able to purchase one here in California. Rebecca’s voice has a sweet element to it, an innocence mixed with some excitement, delivered with an intimacy that is perfect for this song. “Santa Baby, I want a yacht/And really that’s not a lot/I’ve been an angel all year.” Well, Santa can’t argue with that, can he? I appreciate how Rebecca’s last name adds another level of playfulness to that line.
