A Nice Change of Pace
If you like jazz and Christmas music, this will be a welcomed edition to your holiday music library. The collection is eclectic, from up-tempo to relaxing sounds, and should have something for most of us who have varied taste in jazz. If you are tired of the same old sound in standard Christmas arrangements, this is a change of pace you’ll enjoy.
Ho ho ho...bah, humbug...
Really not a bad album, and kudos to the artists, BUT shame on Apple for accepting this ruse from Concord. Ten bucks for a label's demo/sampler album? I don't think so. I've been a jazz fan for over 50 years and have never heard of about 90% of the artists on these tracks. Concord is a major player in jazz recordings and until now, I've had great respect for their label. Unless you really think you need to have this offering, save the ten bucks and spend it on another toy for the kids, or buy a homeless person a Christmas meal.
