On Bells Are Ringing, vocalist Andy James closes out 2022 with an album of holiday songs recorded over the last three years. It includes some of the same illustrious players that were on her previous Le Coq Records release, this year’s Rhythm in New York, including pianist Jon Cowherd, trumpeter Terell Stafford, saxophonist Marcus Strickland and percussionist Alex Acuña.
Bells Are Ringing also features pianist Bill Cunliffe, who arranged many of album’s songs, trumpeter Rashawn Ross, saxophonists Bob Sheppard and Rick Margitza, keyboardist Ronnie Foster, bassist John Patitucci, drummers Vinnie Colaiuta and Joe LaBarbera and others.
James says the idea for Bells Are Ringing came about while she, Colaiuta and Patitucci were recording tracks for their 2021 Le Coq album An Evening with John Patitucci & Andy James at Capitol Studios, and decided it was time do some Christmas songs.
