Finding a good collection of Christmas jazz renditions is always a special gift, whatever the season, and so it is with Ann Hampton Callaway's THIS CHRISTMAS. Various guest musicians add to the lively jazz flavor of this collection.
There are 12 selections. Among them are found "Jingle Bells," "The Christmas Song," "Baby, It's Cold Outside," "I'll Be Home For Christmas," Ann Hampton Callaway's composition "Manhattan in December," "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," "White Christmas,' among others.
A fine holiday collection. Two showcase selections that highlight the silky jazz voice of Callaway are "I'll Be Home For Christmas," and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas." Callaway will steal your heart away when she sings "Baby, It's Cold Outside." Excellent.
