    It's clear from the outset that San Francisco-based singer Russ Lorenson and the admirable Kelly Park Big Band are definitely In the Holiday Spirit on Lorenson's sparkling new CD, a few measures of which are all but certain to lend that same seasonal feeling of happiness and generosity to almost any listener. Lorenson, a clear-voiced tenor, sings from the heart, and his warmth and geniality are contagious. As for the band, it is a swinging companion on whose unwavering support Lorenson can always rely.
    One of the more engaging aspects of Holiday Spirit is that it consists almost entirely of newer and lesser-heard Christmas themes, some of which may take their place in coming years as holiday classics. There's no trace of "customary" seasonal fare to be found until the penultimate track, "The Little Drummer Boy," and even that evergreen is paired with the more recent "Peace on Earth." Lorenson "duets" with himself on "Drummer Boy" and is joined by members of the San Francisco Boys Chorus to enliven the buoyant finale, "It's Christmas Time All Over the World."
