Respect In Yule promises to be among the most fun and eclectic holiday albums ever – the album ranges from introspective to ecstatic, from the popular to the obscure, the sacred to the secular. In choosing the repertoire, The Respect Sextet wanted to pull together some of their favorite holiday music from all genres and view them through Respect-colored glasses. Featuring compositions by Misha Mengelberg, Loudon Wainwright III, Frank Loesser, Robbie Robertson (of The Band), Thelonious Monk, Jule Styne, Sun Ra, and many more, Respect In Yule represents the best of all possible worlds! A truly unique holiday release that is bound to appeal to new music, jazz, improvisation, and… holiday music audiences alike. They are joined by guests from the new music and improv world: the JACK String Quartet, Ensemble Signal with conductor Brad Lubman also hitting the tymps, and guitarist Marco Cappelli. Their previous CD on Mode Records, Sirius Respect: The Respect Sextet plays the music of Sun Ra & Karlheinz Stockhausen, was called “one of the most compelling recordings of the year” by the Wall Street Journal, “one of ’s under-the-radar jazz gems” by the Boston Globe, and Newsweek magazine proclaimed: “LOVE IT”.
