Mindi Abair and the Boneshakers (from the album All I Got for Christmas is the Blues available on Pretty Good for a Girl Records)
Providing a rattle and roll soundtrack for the season, Mindi Abair and the Boneshakers bounce into the holidays with takes on traditional songs in All I Got for Christmas is the Blues, their recent release. Offering a personal tone to the gathered songs, Mindi Abair sets aside her saxophone, picking up a pen for a trio of tunes, giving her heart with “The Best Part of Christmas”, wrapping electricity around the anticipation in “I Can’t Wait for Christmas”, and slashing at the season, carving an X into the holiday with guitar chords on the title track.
Country Folk picks at the beat stomp of “Christmas Fool” as Mindi Abair and the Boneshakers instrumentally decorate with hard Blues in “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire”) and get funky to tell the tale of a rushed reindeer in “Run Run Rudolph”. All I Got for Christmas is the Bluesspins in a blur of twinkling lights for “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and slides into the rough rhythm of “Merry Christmas Baby” while Mindi Abair and the Boneshakers put muscle into seasonal shout of “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)”.
