This is a delicious album of holiday jazz music! It reels you in right from the first note that Louis Prima's gang blows. If you want a Christmas album that has that extra something special (also known as 'swing') then this is the LP for you. It's nice to break up the tempo of typical holiday hymns with this jazzier style. Many of the jazz greats have rare songs on this LP that I didn't know even existed in recording history. I love how the song selection ranges from the 1920's all the way to the 50's. Lastly I quite enjoyed the crackling quality in some of the older songs from the 20's as they were transferred from old 78 RPM records for this compilation.
