Overview

This consummate collection of swinging holiday hits is so full of cheer that even a hermit would want to throw a big bash after listening to it. Yule B' Swingin' Too!, the follow-up to Yule B' Swingin' features 14 tracks whose artist roster reads like a who's who in the jazz world: Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Lionel Hampton, and Ella Fitzgerald, just to name a few. Joe Williams's rendition of "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" could make the white stuff fall in Hawaii and Billie Holiday's version of "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm," would make it melt right back down again. You'll want to play these fun swing hits long after you've taken down your tree. But be prepared, when Yule B' Swingin' Too! starts playing, there will be a room full of empty chairs and a packed dance floor. --Jennifer Jarett

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Zac Johnson
A hoppin' visit from Saint Nick via some of his happier elves, Yule B Swingin' Too is the second release in a series of vocal jazz holiday albums from Hip-O Records. Having released some real classics on the first volume, this edition suffers a little, but several tracks really shine: Ann Margaret and Al Hirt's take on "Baby It's Cold Outside" is a light and funny duet, and Billie Holiday's "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm" lasts as one of the great interpretations of the song. All of these tracks have been previously released during the '40s, '50s, and early '60s, but having them all on one CD makes for certain holiday listening enjoyment.
