Adrian Cunningham & La Lucha

New Holiday Classics (Arbors Records)

Adrian Cunningham & La Lucha present New Holiday Classics for Arbors Records. Songwriting team Gloria Muñoz and Mark Feinman composed music and lyrics for all ten tracks, that range in style from jazz to pop, to a danceable vallenato, and to upbeat R&B.

Backed by the trio La Lucha of chart-topping Everybody Wants To Rule The World, the album features guest singers Camila Meza, Clairdee, and Jamieson. Cunningham sings on six songs, including the two straight-ahead jazz tracks; the warm weathered, “Florida Holiday” and Grinch-like swinger, “It’s So Good To Be Bad.”
