A must for any blues or jazz fan, this 15-track compilation is highlighted by several performances from Louis Armstrong – "Cool Yule," "Zat You, Santa Claus," "Christmas in New Orleans," and his last recording, his 1971 recitation of "The Night Before Christmas," which is worth the price of admission and perhaps the greatest reading of this children's perennial on record. Plus Ella Fitzgerald's "Santa Claus Got Stuck in My Chimney," Clarence Williams's "Santa Claus Blues" (with Armstrong and Sidney Bechet); Fat's Waller's "Swingin' Them Jingle Bells," and more.
