You don't have to be familiar with the glorious voice of Ella Fitzgerald to appreciate this CD. Recorded in 1959 - 1960, Ella's vocal variations of all of the standard xmas favourites are just inspired. Being an avid Ella fan myself, I actually laughed out loud with joy when I first bought this cd in Paris a few years ago. She changes lyrics and melodies in a way only Ella can get away with.... she's BRILLIANT. It's a must have!!!
