Album Review

“Knoxville Tennessee how you doin??” And so begin the festivities on Brian Setzer’s Christmas Comes Alive!, a 2010 release that combines Setzer’s two favorite genres as of late, the live album and the holiday record. He leads his swinging orchestra through seasonal tunes, making “Sleigh Ride” and “Winter Wonderland” jump, jive, and wail, digging out zany R&B and rock & roll standards like “Zat You Santa Claus?” and “Run Rudolph Run,” finding a way to make a medley of “Stray Cat Strut” and “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.” Nothing is unexpected, then, but surprises are overrated for Christmas albums anyway. They should be comforting and reassuring, and that’s a Setzer specialty these days: you always know what you’re going to get — a rollicking hybrid of jump blues and rockabilly — and if that’s what you want out of a holiday record, Christmas Comes Alive! will not let you down.

Customer Reviews

Great album

So many good catchy hooks on this album. Wont take this out of my CD player!


Brian's latest release "Christmas Comes Alive," is a great album for most any holiday situation. Upbeat, fun, and a great sounding recording, the quality of the mix and performance is captured exquisitely and lets his stylin' rockabilly swagger shine through. His guitar and band come alive, delivering a jolly rockabilly-meets-big-band arrangement that creates a festive, fun, and rockin' Christmas spirit~

Love It

I always love when Brian Setzer releases a Christmas album, and this one doesn't disappoint. His music is so much fun, and when combined with the Christmas spirit, it makes the whole season just that much better. I also like how they are live recordings, so you can really hear the crowd get into it as much as I am. Definitely a must have for all rockabilly fans and Brian Setzer die-hards.


Genre: Rock

Every decade has its own retro craze spearheaded by a true believer who brings classic sounds and style back into vogue. Brian Setzer performed this trick not just once but twice, first as the leader of the Stray Cats, the trio that brought rockabilly back into the charts during the '80s, then he helped popularize the swing revival of the '90s with the Brian Setzer Orchestra. Both of these sounds were grounded in the '50s -- that's when rockabilly was born but also the heyday of the kind of jump...
