The First Lady Of Song's original holiday classic!

An eubllient Ella Fitzgerald exudes warmth and good cheer of Yuletide

Originally released by Verve in 1960. Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas is a charming, warmly humorous — and yes, swinging — set of classic Christmas tunes, writes AllMusic. The program is familiar, from bouncy singalongs like "Jingle Bells" to slinky ballads like a downright sexy "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," but Fitzgerald treats each song with exactly as much respect as it deserves.

And so Frank Loesser's "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve" is wistfully romantic and Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne's "Let It Snow" is kittenishly enticing. As always, Norman Granz's production avoids the schlock that drowns some holiday sets. This is as good as jazz Christmas albums get.

Not a horrible sounding record but my Canadian Verve sounds more natural. This is most likely a digital sourced album as with most lower priced reissues.

PLEASE AP....reissue this AAA if possible. It will easily be your highest selling christmas album. Here's to next year!?

45 RPM
