Two songs ("Christmas Stockin' Stuffer" and "How Santa Got Thin") have humorous vocals by Jon Hendricks, and a few numbers add three strings; Grey is generally the main voice throughout the instrumentals. Among his sidemen are guitarist Joe Cohn (who takes a rare solo on trumpet), Al's son Mike Grey on second trombone and either pianist Norman Simmons or David Lee Braham on piano and organ. Among the Yuletide favorites explored on the joyful set are "Winter Wonderland," "Jingle Bells" and a closing "Auld Lang Syne."
