From the first few notes of Chet Bakers warm fluegelhorn pulling the strings of Mel Tormés celebrated The Christmas Song, you get a taste of what is to come: a distinctive collection of tasty tributes to this classic standard by the hand of fine jazz soloists, great singers, small groups and lush orchestras.
The result is one of cool enjoyment! Savor the full scope of this perennial anthem to yuletide joy and, as the song goes, Merry Christmas to you!
