Album Review

One of the better Christmas jazz sets, Joe Williams is heard in quartets and quintets with pianist Norman Simmons, in several tender duets with pianist Ellis Larkins and backed by a horn section on a few tracks. It is nice to hear Williams' versions of such tunes as "Winter Wonderland," "Silent Night" and "The Christmas Song," but it's his interpretation of Thad Jones's "A Child Is Born" that takes honors.

Customer Reviews

brilliant classy jazzy christmas

one of the very best vocalists singing the classics - perennial favorite

Great Horn arrangements!

I wish there was more information in the decriptions on I tunes. I understand that Bobby Watson wrote the horn arrangements for this album. They are very tasty and musically well done. It really adds a big band sound to the album without the big band. Really catchy riffs as well!

Easily the best ever "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?"

I tend to like female jazz vocalists but Joe Williams is one astounding exception. I'm a huge Shirley Horn fan because you feel like she had lived enough to sing it from deep inside. Joe makes me feel the same way. I can just picture him singing these. I could play his "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve" over and over and over and over again. He's effortless and I simply love him...like I do Shirley.
