The late pianist and vocalist Charles Brown lends his signature cool, laid-back jazz style to a variety of Christmas favorites, accompanied here by a slew of jazz and blues greats, including blues guitarist Lowell Fulson and blues singers Jimmy Reed and the legendary Big Joe Williams. Brown was a contemporary of Nat "King" Cole, with many stylistic similarities to his more commercially successful counterpart, as well as a strong influence on the young Ray Charles. His intimate delivery, coupled with the empathic interplay between the musicians in these mainly quartet recordings from throughout his long career, conjures the warmth and conviviality of the season.
