This year, in a moment of sentimentality toward Christmas, I decided that I really wanted to find an album of Christmas songs performed in a jazz style. Despite having spent a lot of this year furthering my interest in jazz, I'm still a bit lost in the genre, and it proved to be the case with this search for a Christmas album that there's an awful lot of dross around. In the end, I settled on an album of lovely piano jazz by the late Dave Brubeck.

I knew I was on safe ground with Brubeck; though I detested it in my youth, 'Take Five', the 1959 track he is best known for, has become a piece that I listen to a lot these days. I even have an album on which Brubeck performs 'Some Day My Prince Will Come' from Disney's 'Snow White', and I felt reasonably assured that him turning his pianist hands to a suite of Christmas songs would be of a high standard, and that's exactly how it turned out to be. One reviewer on Amazon described it as being perfect for nights in front of the fire with a mug of cocoa; I neither have a fireplace nor do I like cocoa, but I completely get where he was coming from, and I can't begin to describe it better myself.

This is the one to play when you need a little holiday peace and joy. Put the kids to bed, fix yourself a hot cocoa and settle in for an hour to get centered again with this wonderful CD. I own a lot of Christmas music, but this seems to be the one I turn to again and again - it's nostalgic, joyful, exuberant and peaceful, all at the same time -- just like Dave Brubeck himself. You'll see what I mean when you first play it: it's magic.

On purchasing this album, I was pleased that it arrived on time, just before Christmas. Then on playing it I found it 'hit the right note' with me. With the playing both being able to hear the carols and their variations. I look forward for the coming Christmas' in playing this delightful album.

This and a George Shearing CD are the first music of its kind I have purchased. Very nice background music for the festive season, but as the Christmas side of it isn't in your face, you could happily play them any time of the year! The carols are sometimes American tunes which I find make a nice change as your ears can be pre-programmed with the music you grew up with! I shall be buying more of both artists.

A little disappointed, thought I was buying a vinyl version but received a cd version instead. This after I clicked on Amazon vinyls , must be more careful in future.
