Does a Christmas-themed album strictly need only holiday-specific songs to make it official?  Novel Noel, A Jingle Cool Jazz Celebration successfully challenges this idea with the wonderful addition of It's Magic. This 1949 Academy Award nominated  song by Jules Styne and Sammy Cahn (written in 1947) was popularized by Doris Day in her film debut, Romance on the High Seas.  It was Lyn's thought that special things happen at Christmas time, creating a magical feel to the holiday season.  She and her band broke with traditional delivery as well when they decided this song would be more romantic under a smoldering Latin rhythm - a rumba – aimed at bringing couples closer. Lyn's tender, heartfelt vocal expresses the mystical intimacy and connection that only love can bring. Los Angeles area's KKjz-88.1fm jazz programmer, Saul Levine, proclaimed upon hearing the song, "It's a hit!!"
