This CD is a real must-have for Christmas. I'd recommend popping it on while you are preparing your Christmas meal - it's so relaxing and will completly de-stress you and set you up for the whole day. Really feels like Christmas when it's on.

Have Yourself A Very Jazzy Christmas! 6 Dec. 2011
By Rebecca*rhapsodyinblue* - Published on
Format: Audio CD
To sweeten your holidays, listen to this lovely jazzy compilation CD from Telarc! Released in 2006, it features 12 tracks from ten different albums that were recorded from 1992 through 1998 by Telarc's most outstanding recording artists such as Oscar Peterson, Sir George Shearing, Mel Torme, Dave Brubeck, Kenny Barron, Gerry Mulligan, Ray Brown Trio, Kevin Mahogany, Russell Malone, Jim Hall, Al Di Meola and Jeannie Bryson.

This is one Christmas CD that is indeed very relaxing--the kind that whispers to your ears and caresses your soul. It calms, soothes and relaxes you. The magical hands of Oscar Peterson on the ivories will mesmerize you with his renditions of "White Christmas" and "Christmas Waltz," two tracks from one of the most beautiful Christmas albums ever recorded, "An Oscar Peterson Christmas," which highlights some of the finest musicians in the jazz scene namely Dave Samuels (vibes), Lorne Lofsky (guitar), David Young (bass) and Jerry Fuller (drums).

Sir George Shearing spotlessly plays "Away In A Manger" while two of the best names when it comes acoustic guitar--Jim Hall and Al Di Meola--artfully perform "O Tannenbaum" and Ave Maria," respectively.

This collection also includes tracks with inimitable, cool vocals such as Mel Torme's "Christmas Time Is Here" with Cincinnati Sinfonietta, Kevin Mahogany's "The Christmas Song" with Ray Brown Trio, and Jeannie Bryson's "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" featuring Kenny Barron on piano.

Great musicians Dave Brubeck (piano) and Gerry Mulligan (baritone sax) sparkle and spread good cheer as they play in utter joie de vivre a wonderful perennial favorite, "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town." Another Dave Brubeck number is a beautiful solo of "Silent Night."

This is the kind of music that warms the heart this blessed Season...a season of giving and sharing, a season of love and friendship, a season of compassion and hope, a season of joy and peace.

"Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love." ~ Hamilton Wright Mabie ~

I love it! 8 Oct. 2008
By Jinxy K. - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I just received this CD and I love it!!! If you're not a huge jazz fan this is the one for you! This would be a great CD for background Christmas music at a party. Although I will listen to this as part of my music collection for the Christmas holiday! It is very relaxing and great music to "wind down" to in the evening. I would definitely recommend this CD!!

Soothing background music for Christmas 10 Jan. 2011
By Rose Prose - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It's not easy at Christmas time to find peaceful music to play in the background -- to enable you to talk during a meal-- or just hang out without the music dominating.This is the kind of sound that is neither muzac nor Handel's Messiah. I enjoyed it and so did my guests. Just great perfomers doing calm numbers well.
