Christmas Songs [Milestone]

Christmas Songs [Milestone]



Fantasy has put together a dozen Christmas jazz performances on this interesting CD with five of them (by Ron Affif, Ruth Brown, Curtis Peagler, Joe Pass and Anita O'Day) being previously unissued. In addition there are fine performances from Hank Crawford, Bill Evans ("Santa Claus Is Coming to Town"), Coleman Hawkins, Red Garland, Niels Lan Doky, Tom Harrell and Chet Baker (his 1953 version of "Winter Wonderland"). It's an enjoyable set of bop-oriented Xmas jazz.
