AVID Jazz presents the third release in AVID’s Christmas Classic Album series with a re-mastered 2CD release featuring four Christmas Jazz albums plus by Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Charles Brown, Stan Kenton and Sidney Bechet complete with original artwork and liner notes.
From 1960 “Ella Wishes You A Swinging Christmas”; Peggy Lee also from 1960 “Christmas Carousel”; the great unsung jazz and soul singer Charles Brown from 1961 “Sings Christmas Songs”; Stan Kenton offering a smooth “A Merry Christmas” and as a bonus E.P. legendary hornman Sidney Bechet gets festive from 1958 “Joue Noel”. You may think that the jazz scene is full of extremely cool characters playing crazy music in smoky bars and clubs and wearing shades with sharp suits and dresses. Actually you may well be right, but one thing we are sure they all have in common is…….. a love for Christmas! Surely not we hear you cry! But take a listen to our next five selections and we think you will hear what we are talking about. Five very different approaches to Christmas is just what you would expect from a Jazz Christmas party. And that is just what you get with these classic seasonal suggestions!
Merry Christmas!
