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.
Missing important greats
This is only a partial album. The full album also contains Eartha Kitt's "Santa Baby". It would be nice to get it all in one download
I think this is perfect for Christmas parties and holiday get togethers. Loved it.
A JAZZ CHRISTMAS
If you like jazz and love Christmas then who is beater then the king himself Satchmos. You'll certainly will not fall asleep like in other Christmas songs; no you'll be hop'n and whishing it was Christmas all year around. NEED TO BUY, NOW.
