Award-winning jazz songstress Holly Cole performs favorites from two of her most beloved holiday albums — Baby It’s Cold Outside and Christmas Blue.
From the start, Holly was surrounded by music and musicians. Her parents were both classical players, her brother is a composer and jazz artist and her grandfather played C&W accordion. In her mid teens she discovered jazz through Nina Simone and Betty Carter. This discovery led to an impromptu visit to her brother at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA., where she got a real feel for performing jazz. In 1983 Holly traveled to Toronto to seek a career in music. Three years later in 1986 she formed the Holly Cole Trio with pianist Aaron Davis and bassist David Piltch. In 1989 she signed her first record deal in Canada with Canadian indie Label Alert Music releasing that year a 4 song EP, Christmas Blues followed by her first full length recording “Girl Talk” in 1990 and all subsequent recordings in Canada up to and including 2001’s Baby Its Cold Outside.
