This is my favourite Christmas CD, it has something for everyone! It's the perfect antidote for the tired old tunes that everyone plays at Christmas (if I hear "I wish it could be Christmas every day" one more time I won't be responsible for my actions), the highlights being "Zat you Santa Claus?" by Louis Armstrong and "Silent Night" by Dinah Washington.
Give it a go and you won't be disappointed, especially at this price!!

My wife and I enjoy this collection. There is a little traditional, a little modern, some soulful, some fun. A relaxing mix of music to settle down with.

I will be honest, recently I can be bothered to write reviews, must be all the mince pies clogging up my brain. I have however felt it was of great importance to let anyone searching for a grown ,sophisticated, lite-jazzy and relaxing christmas album, then this is one to check out.

I don't usually write reviews, but I just had to say how good this is. If you're looking for a jazzy, chilled, slightly old-school jazz-feel Christmas CD, then this is it. Love it.

If you're as fed up as most of us of hearing the same festive songs again and again, stick this CD on at Christmas and everyone from Grandma to the youngsters, via the dog, will be in seventh heaven by lunchtime. Quite simply a marvelous collection which made Christmas 2011 a special treat in our house!.

I played quite a few tracks on my jazz show, but I really loved 'Zat You Santa Claus?' by Louis Armstrong. Having said that, the artists read like a list of Who's Who in jazz history. Buy this, and have some fun, comforting, easy jazz to enjoy next Christmas.

I really enjoyed this record. A world away from the usual dross you hear at Xmas. The Louis Armstrong and Billy Ekstine numbers are my favourites!
