Sultans of String, “Christmas Caravan”
Reviewed by: Kim Walter, April 2018
Wow! A horribly timed, yet completely awesome Christmas themed album. Seriously, the best collection of holiday songs played in the most unique versions I’ve ever heard. I’m thinking about burning a copy so my dad can stop playing the same old carols that I hate. Every one is interesting, I marked lots that impressed me, esp 5 and 12.

*1. Slow/Med - Turkish Greensleeves
2. Slow/Med - Kwanzaa song
*3. Slow - English translation of Canada’s first Christmas carol
*4. Med - Instrumental mashup of carol of the Bells with the original Ukrainian version
**5. Slow/Med - Lyrics set to Bach’s music
6. Med - New carol crafted from “Hark!”
*7. Slow/Med - The ONLY version of this song I have EVER liked
*8. Med - Jazzy and snappy upbeat PC holiday tune
*9. Slow - Traditional celtic folk feel
10. Med - Jazzy jingle bells
**12. Slow/Med - Django Reinhardt style composite song
*13. Med - Unique version of religious song with some new addition
14. Slow/Med - Ruben Blades and Luba Mason sing Lennon/Ono classics
*15. Slow - This violin sings the best silent night
*17. Slow - Once again, all I can say is wow!
