A Must Have Bevy of Holiday Cheer!
I downloaded this a few years back but lost it when I lost my iPod - this is a phenomenal collection of jazz music from ghosts of jazz greats past and present. Chris Botti, Wynton Marsalis and Steve Tyrell (among others) serve up the present collection of great artists but then we travel back in time to a potpourri of great music. The best includes the mono recordings of Winter Weather by Benny Goodman and Peggy Lee and Winter Wonderland by Louis Armstrong.
If you can only have 1 collection of holiday songs - this is the one to have!
Christmas favs with a twist
Downloaded this for 2011 Christmas party. It was great. Lots of compliments on the music from friends. Some of the old standards jazzed to be fresh and joyful. Highly recommend.
