Another Sentimental Christmas (2010)

Another Sentimental Christmas is the 11th studio and second Christmas album by Christian singer - songwriter Russ Taff, released on October 12, 2010 by Spring Hill Music and distributed by EMI-Christian Music Group.

Nearly two decades after his first holiday album A Christmas Song (1992), Taff returns with his second Christmas album, once again produced and arranged by his long-time musician and collaborator James Hollihan, Jr. and featuring a mix of sacred and traditional Christmas songs done in big band style and jazz, reminiscent of the crooners of Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra. There is one original song called "It's Christmas Again" written by Hollihan and CCM singer - songwriter Kim Boyce. Taff covers two songs: the 1992 modern jazz song "Here's to Life" as originally recorded by American jazz singer and pianist Shirley Horn and "Peace" co-written and recorded by singer - songwriter Beth Nielsen Chapman. Taff also re-records "The Christmas Song" with musicians, longer than the first time he recorded a capella on his first Christmas album.
