When The River Meets The Sea
by Rose Polenzani with Session Americana
Shockingly, today was one of the few days that my co-worker actually decided she wanted to hold a conversation with me, and the subject she chose to come up with of all subjects was Christmas movies and specials. Now, I am not the biggest fan of Christmas movies, music, specials, or really even the holiday but after pointing out her favorites, she asked me what I liked. On the off-chance of consternating my fellow co-worker, I chose not to give my usual reply of "Black Christmas" [the original version with Margot Kidder and her *oral* jokes, of course] and "Silent Night, Deadly Night" [which I enjoy every year about that time], I told her "Scrooged," "It's A Wonderful Life," and "A Christmas Story." And then she asked me, "what Christmas specials do you like?" "Well, my all-time favorite Christmas special is Emmett Otter's Jug Band Christmas," which she had never heard of before. It still astonishes me that most people people don't remember this one or not have at least seen it once.

Well, this conversation is what inspired today's selection. This song was written by Paul Williams specifically for Jim Henson's Christmas Special [this is the original piece: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWRoAac6tAE ] and it was performed for the Jim Henson Memorial Service [ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJ_up6-uRAs ] in 1990.

About 5 years ago, I came across the most loveliest version of this song I've ever heard, performed by Rose Polenzani. It quickly became a personal favorite and has become part of my regular rotation on many of my Spotify playlists since the discovery.

Also, this is a belated #SundaySoother as my own work week has finally wound down, and as I finally get the sleep I need.
