Holly Jolly X'masu

Welcome to episode 31 of Holly Jolly X'masu! In this episode, I talk about Ohashi Trio’s 2013 album, “Magic.”

Magic - 2013

When I first got this CD, I listened to it repeatedly for a couple weeks. I thought it was fantastic. I did slightly regret the fact that I couldn’t get the DVD, as I’d have liked to have seen the short film, “Tree House.” Unfortunately, not only could I not get the DVD, but I’ve yet to see the video turn up online. The video for “Magic” appears to have been made from footage from “Tree House,” or at least shot concurrently, so you can get something of a feel for the film.

Unlike the bulk of the albums I’ve covered, I was able to find videos for nearly every song on the album. The only one missing is “Hallelujah.”

Thanks for listening, and I hope you enjoyed Ohashi Trio as much as I did. Be sure to listen in next week to my special Halloween episode where I discuss the 1978 sci-fi thriller, “Blue Christmas – Blood Type: Blue,” and its soundtrack.

As always, any feedback on this episode would be appreciated. If have any suggestions, or if you’d like to recommend a song or album for a future episode, drop me a line and let me know.

Remember, I've added a button to my Ko-fi page. If you'd like to support me one cup of coffee at a time, a donation is only $3. I’ve also opened a Redbubble store. I only have a couple designs up, but keep an eye on it as I’ll be trying to add more. Any proceeds or donations received will be put towards purchasing new Japanese Christmas music to review for future episodes. You can also find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And if you get a chance, leave me a review on iTunes. Thanks!
