"Ella Fitzgerald's Christmas album is a secular holiday delight sure to please every listener, even atheists and agnostics. Originally released in 1960, the sound here is warm and inviting as a Yule log burning in the fireplace ... Perfect QRP pressing too." — Music = 9/11; Sound = 9/11 — Michael Fremer, AnalogPlanet.com. To read Fremer's full review, click here.

A holiday album from the jazz legend! Have a swinging Christmas and a jazzy new year with this joyous 1960 Ella LP in your collection. She sings (and swings) "Jingle Bells," "Sleigh Ride," "Winter Wonderland," and more! She puts her singular stamp on everything from a sultry vamp like "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?" to the sweet and cozy "The Christmas Song." Even potentially shopworn standards like "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town" sound fresher when they're coming from Ella Fitzgerald.

This pressing is wonderful

Bought this LP in spite of having a MFSL gold CD & original LP. Have to say this pressing is dead silent re: surface noise and dead flat. The Orchestra mix & Ella’s voice are spot on. Well balanced, lush and fun to listen too even if it’s not the holiday season. Highly recommend this LP

5 star pressing! Silky smooth vocals plus lush jazzy goodness!

Reviewer: Carson Tucker
Fantastic reissue by Chad Kassem, RKS, QRP, and all the other vinyl superstars involved. Sublime musical, warm, silky sound. More than fantastic, this record is a treasure to behold! Agree with everything Mikey Fremer said in his review. Chad knocks it out of the park once again! Please Keep it Up Sir.

Ella at her very best!

Wow! This just arrived today and I am entranced! OK, I realize this is not technically an Analogue Productions release, but it is from the Acoustic Sounds Series overseen by Chad Kassem and his crew at Acoustic Sounds. This one is spectacular! A wonderful pressing by QRP that is crystal clear, very dynamic and dead quiet. One of the very best in my collection. Sure its a Christmas album but, any day is a good day to enjoy Ella. Get this one for sure!
