Album Review

Louis Armstrong & Friends' Christmas Collection is a lot of fun. Along with Satchmo, the represented artists on this 14-song collection include Dinah Washington, Mel Tormé, Peggy Lee, Lionel Hampton, Eartha Kitt, Duke Ellington, Lena Horne, and Louis Jordan. While the main focus is on hipster tunes like "Cool Yule," "Merry Christmas, Baby," "May Everyday Be Christmas," "'Zat You, Santa Claus?," and "Santa Baby," the traditional and somber material ("The Christmas Song," "White Christmas," and "Silent Night") doesn't bring down the overall celebratory atmosphere. This is perfect background music for any Xmas get-together.

For this, he is revered by jazz fans. But Armstrong also became an enduring figure in popular music, due to his distinctively phrased bass singing and engaging...
