Personnel: Josh Groban (piano); Dean Parks, Andy McKee (guitar); Lucia Micarelli (violin); Jochem van der Saag (programming); Richard Page (background vocals). Audio Mixer: Humberto Gatica. Recording information: Chartmaker Studios; EMI Abbey Road Studios, London, England; Rak Studios; Westlake Audio. Directors: Bill Ives ; Kirk Franklin; Craig Jessop. Photographer: Frank Ockenfels. Unknown Contributor Role: London Symphony Orchestra. Arrangers: E. Taylor; Josh Groban; Kirk Franklin; William Ross ; Brad Dechter. Only his fourth studio album, NOEL finds Josh Groban already tackling that canonical mainstay of the adult contemporary singer, the Christmas album. As always, NOEL is a masterfully performed set, balanced neatly between pop standards and the more operatic material that showcases Groban's roots. Interestingly, he sounds best on the most familiar holiday standards, like "I'll Be Home For Christmas" and Mel Torme's "The Christmas Song," both of which he invests with casual, jazzy phrasing, providing a welcome disinclination for the usual Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby homages that many other young singers in the style fall into. Even this early into his career, Groban clearly has a deeply held sense of who he is as a singer and interpreter, and this lovely collection is proof that he's one of the most exciting adult contemporary stars to appear in ages.

  • Warm, Wonderful, Glorious Groban!

    I just bought "Noel" and have to listen to it every day- it is SO BEAUTIFUL! This is a CD you MUST HAVE for Christmas this year. Absolutely every song is Josh Groban at his glorious best. Silent Night is my favorite, with the contrast of Josh's rich, deep voice contrasting with the angelic Children's Choir. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra are the perfect compliment to Josh's majestic voice- You will HAVE to sing along with that one. And Josh's solos are classic, perfectly gorgeous Groban. The best thing about this CD is that every single song is a keeper- not like some CDs you buy and end up only liking 6 of the 13 songs on it- you know what I mean?? It's so good, I'm ordering another for my daughter to have for her very own Christmas.

  • A timeless CD

    This is the very best Christmas CD I have ever heard. Josh's voice and the arrangement of the traditional songs, give them a whole new sound. Ave Maria just takes your breath away. The magnificent Oh Come All Ye Faithful , with the Morman Tabernacle Choir, is a wonderful end of the CD. You will want to share this music with everyone you know.
