Rhythm Section Christmas
Small ensemble here kids and true to the genre of jazz. I bought this cd when it first came out and it's still part of my holiday playlist. The late Shirley Horn just fills me with spirit listening to her horn-like voice reading "The Christmas Song" in her signature cabaret style. Abby Lincoln fills me with "Christmas Cheer" and the late Betty Carter makes me long for home with "Home For The Holidays." Overall this cd offers a jazz twist on the most popular traditional songs and reinvents them making it feel like we're listening to "Frosty The Snowman" for the first time and in a way, we are.
annual favorite in a diverse collection
this is the best holiday album i own! great jazz, great vocals, great songs. gets me geared up for the holidays, keeps me as mellow as possible during the season and never, ever gets old. part of my electronic, alt rock, classic and soul holiday music collection.
A Must have!
By far the best Holiday Jazz collection ever made, with superb artists and arrangements. Every year I listen to Jazz for Joy and I'm enriched by it. This collection never gets old, only better and better every time I hear it. Not much more i can say.
