Asked why she chose this song in particular for her next single, Meg shares: “We wanted to create something fun and vintage for the holidays. When it comes to holiday music, I’ve always loved the early music of the ’40s,’ 50s & ’60s. I thought it would be fun to [my record label] Turtle Bay to create something authentic vintage but not limited to the 20s / 30s.

To recreate the classic sound of the analog era, Megg’s label helped recorder producer Jon Atkinson of BigTone Records, which specializes in antique recording equipment. “Everything you hear is recorded live and recorded on authentic equipment from the 1940s, 50s & 60s,” Megg explained. “The heat of the pre-digital way of recording is evident in the result. I’m excited to share it!” The line-up staff are: Ricky Alexander (saxophone), Mike Davis (trumpet), Justin Poindexter (guitar), Tal Ronen (bass), Jesse Gelber (piano), Chris Gelb (drums) and Sam Chess (trombone).
