Have Yourself a Jazzy Little Christmas [Verve]

This 15-track CD has something for everyone: the smooth vocal styling of Billy Eckstine on "Christmas Eve," and the purring Dinah Washington on the seductive "Ole Santa," and Ella Fitzgerald showing her soft and sentimental side on the single, "The Secret of Christmas." Billie Holiday, with help from Benny Carter and Sweets Edison, warms up the punch bowl with "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm," while Sister Rosetta Tharpe raises the rafters on her powerful rendition of "O Little Town of Bethlehem." Jimmy Smith and his funky Hammond B3 invigorate "Jingle Bells," adding tympani and horns, he totally reinvents "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen."
