12 Minutes of Christmas
Embarrassment or brilliance? You be the judge! Amidst the very exotic record collection of my dear friend Captain Nemo in Munich, I stumbled on a delightful Christmas album recorded in Hawaii in 1949: \'Mele Kalikimaka\' by Arthur Lyman. Surprisingly, the lush arrangements left plenty of room for vocals, so I seized the opportunity to apply a loving irony to a few of my favorite Christmas classics - indeed, just enough for 12 Minutes of Christmas. - JJ Jones JJ Jones began performing very publicly as the lead singer of the Berlin-based kitsch-pop-ensemble known as Fuzzy Love. From there he dabbled in avant-garde electronica, slummed with the revival of Germany\'s beloved underground band Der Plan, and crooned with the fabulous Miss Claudia from Denmark, not to mention singing as a member of a Serbian Orthodox church choir. He currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee (Music City USA) where he sings these Christmas songs inside a Human Snow Globe.
