Christmas Music: Leslie Odom Jr.

I love Christmas music, and most years I like to recommend a Christmas music album that is a bit more jazz or has something interesting about it. This year I want to point you to Leslie Odom Jr., aka Aaron Burr in the hit musical Hamilton, who is a gifted vocalist. Hat tip: Rose Kuo. Check out “My Favorite Things.” Embedded on Spotify below, also on iTunes and Amazon.

  2. Great album! Thanks for the recommendation. Easily my favourite rendition of “My Favorite Things”. It’s probably why I had that song on repeat for an hour. Merry Christmas!
