Reviewer: Doug C
I've always been a fan of 'Christmas records' (as we used to call them) and found them to be an enjoyable diversion across many genres. Not many jazz artists did them however but this strikes me as one of the best all around I've heard. This 'new' discovery for me - both artist and album - is highly recommendable to both the curious and non-jazz fan alike. Since it is in a jazz format, one can get away with playing it all year round before others catch up to what you are listening to. If interested, don't hesitate. Great sound, silent pressing.
