Overview

With five discs and 100 tracks, this holiday set is expansive and interesting. Some of the sides will be familiar to nearly everyone -- classics like Bing Crosby's version of "White Christmas" and Perry Como's "Winter Wonderland" pop up in the stores and all over the radio dial during the season's festivities -- but other selections here are fairly rare and give things a depth that a lot of holiday collections don't reach. Among the highlights are Louis Armstrong's "Christmas in New Orleans," Nat King Cole's take on "Frosty the Snowman," the Weavers' "We Wish You a Merry Christmas," Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli's "Christmas Swing," and Jack Teagarden and Johnny Mercer's "Christmas Night in Harlem," all showing just how varied and delightful this set is.
