Entertainment Reviews:

Musician - 1/96, p.88
"...relaxed groove. A sympathetic rhythm section simmers on the up tunes and cools down with taste on the ballads....[Peterson's] solos probe the harmonic corners of the tune, with plenty of space, an unhurried feel, and only the occasional hair-raising embellishment.."
Jazziz - 12/95, p.28
"...holy, holy, holy....Every cut is a gem on this recording..."

Oscar Peterson takes it easy during his relaxed set. He had not completely recovered from his stroke but he was still an impressive pianist. Peterson, who is assisted by guitarist Lorne Lofsky, bassist David Young, and drummer Jerry Fuller, is joined by a 20-piece string section arranged and conducted by Rick Wilkins. The 14 holiday tunes (which include "God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman," "White Christmas," "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas") are given tasteful and lightly swinging treatments and there are guest appearances by vibraphonist Dave Samuels and flugelhornist Jack Schantz. But no real surprises or chancestaking occurs and the music is mostly just pleasant. ~ Scott Yanow

Rating 5.0 If you are buying only one..... Music Lover: from INDY -- January, 5, 2008

This quite possibly is the quintessential jazz christmas album that has ever been or will ever be!
Easy on the ears, yet mesmerizing throughout, it places you into the Christmas Spirit past, present, and future. A total Must have, period! You should buy this cd first, then the rest afterward.
It is off the charts great!
