Your Thanksgiving dinner is cheaper this year. Here's why

Bela Fleck & the Flecktones

Bela Fleck & the Flecktones, “Jingle All the Way” (Rounder): This one will make any inattentive holiday party guests sit up and take notice, starting with the Flecktones’ far-flung interpretation of “Jingle Bells” with the Alash Ensemble of Tuvan throat singers. This collective of folk-rooted newgrass instrumentalists won’t be limited in transforming songs as disparate as “The Hanukkah Waltz,” a section of Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, Tchaikovsky’s “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies” and Joni Mitchell’s “River.” 3 ½ stars
