After many years of fans and friends requesting a holiday album, Nena revisits her jazz roots with a new EP, “Christmas with Nena.” The recording features Nena’s longtime collaborator, Adrian Demain on guitar, and San Diego jazz icons Rob Thorson on bass and Duncan Moore on drums.
Producer, Deane Cote, also contributed a song to the EP, a swinging song titled, “Christmastime Again,” reminiscent of classic Sinatra tunes of the 60’s. And the drummer from Nena’s Americana band, Tim Petersen, contributed the fun, Tom Waits-ish “Kris Kringle Wants to Mingle.” Nena’s own “Christmas in Mexico” will take you all the way to the sunny warm sands of the Sea of Cortez while you dream about holiday traditions. Add to that two songs that will make you wish the holidays didn’t end…”What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” Completing the package is a whimsical painting by artist Miles Thompson, celebrating the joy of the holidays. This is an album that you will treasure year after year!
