Streams Videos All Posts. Introspection Late Night Partying. Drinking Hanging Out In Love. A distant third, "Christmas Fantasy" feels too forced, but all is forgiven when Baker closes the album with an effervescent "My Favorite Things," putting her own spin on a song despite all the "definitive" versions that have come before.

Anita Baker – Christmas Fantasy Lyrics | Genius Lyrics
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. Introspection Late Night Partying. Rainy Day Relaxation Road Trip. Jazz Latin New Age.
Kudos to Baker for avoiding anything sugary or diva and delivering on the promise she makes in the liner notes. With George DukeLarry CarltonJoe Samplethe underrated Ricky Lawsonand other top-notch folk involved, it would be a shame not to let these boys play, but as much as they get to vamp, it's still Fahtasy 's album, percent.
Sexy Trippy All Moods.
Holiday titles live a bit outside an artist's standard discography, but if you look at Christmas Fantasy as a follow-up to the comeback My Everythingit continues that album's looser feel, less concerned with the charts and all the better because of it. I'll Be Home for Christmas. Her increasing love of scat singing finds her interacting with the musicians in cool urbanite fashion, free but neither languid nor shamelessly bold.
Part of the reason for this is the band. Frosty's Rag Frosty the Snowman. Drinking Hanging Out In Love.
Christmas Fantasy by Anita Baker on Spotify
The exciting Crescent City take on "Frosty the Snowman," "Frosty's Rag," may be the standout track at first glance, but it's the cool interaction between singer and band on more subdued numbers like "O Come, All Ye Faithful" with the Yellowjackets and "Moonlight Sleighride" that makes the album worth returning to each holiday season. With its sparse, nearly haiku lyrics, "Moonlight Sleighride" is far and away the best of the three original numbers here, with "Family of Man" finishing second due to its mostly non-holiday lyrics that are clumsily tied to Christmas with a tacked-on final verse.
