Sunday Jazz — December 22nd
Nat King Cole, Elvis, Celine Dion, Bing Crosby, John Lennon. With all due respect to each of these legends, none of their voices are the one I most look forward to hearing playing over the radio during November and December. You can’t deny that each of them produced timeless renditions of particular Christmas songs, which I have heard repeatedly over the last few weeks, but for my money, none of them hold a candle to the songs on the “Louis Armstrong and Friends” Christmas album.
If you’ve never heard this album, here are a couple of tracks. Just be careful listening to the 2nd one however, because after a few times through you might start asking yourself, “Who was that other guy that sang this song….maybe in a movie with a similar name?”
