Columbia through the years has had several Christmas jazz samplers. This album is mostly from the 1961-62 period, although there is an unusual version of "Deck the Halls" that features both Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea on pianos in 1969 with a nonet. Highlights include Duke Ellington's "Jingle Bells," the Chico Hamilton Quintet playing "Winter Wonderland," the Dave Brubeck Quartet romping through "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," and Bob Dorough's bah-humbug "Blue Xmas" with Miles Davis. ~ Scott Yanow
