This holiday season, we're excited to share something a little different before everyone heads home for winter break:
Our first wordless holiday mix.
This little playlist is the best of both worlds for your December listening: a festive (but not too festive), jolly (but still laid-back) mix of instrumental classics, holiday covers spanning jazz/folk/funk/bluegrass/rock & more, and some off-kilter selections that still get the chestnuts roasting.
So hop on the sleigh and release your inner yuletide spirit – while keeping it casual and, like, sufficiently in the background.
We might keep updating in the days to come, but for now the mix features wordless holiday ditties from Andrew Bird, Béla Fleck, Booker T & the MGs, John Coltrane, Philip Glass, the Eddie Higgins Trio, Sufjan Stevens, the Ventures, the Westerlies, Yo-Yo Ma, A Charlie Brown Christmas, and more...
Who did we miss? Let us know! Or just drop your favorite holiday themed wordless music at our open and public collaborative playlist.
