This funky little holiday gem from 1964 was originally released on Sue Records and was actually Jimmy McGriff's highest charting album, rising to number 15 on the pop charts that year. Naturally his gritty Hammond B-3 playing is front and center here, given wonderful support by drummer Jimmie Smith, guitarist Larry Frazier, and Rudolph Johnson on soprano and tenor saxophone. The whole affair is surprisingly energetic and spunky, and tracks like the hard-charging "Christmas With McGriff," the sleigh bell-embedded "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," and the lively "Hip Santa" are all wonderful examples of upbeat soul jazz. Even the version of "Jingle Bells" that closes the set is funked up, riding a chugging rhythm and a bed of sleigh bells into the yuletide night. McGriff could have easily gone through the motions on this holiday session, and that he obviously didn't makes Christmas With Jimmy McGriff even more endearing. ~ Steve Leggett

christmas organ fest Music Lover: from INDY -- January, 5, 2008

Great jazz christmas with the hammond b-3 organ.
This is addictive to listen to, and there is sure to be a track or two that goes into your favorite playlists for sure.
Great guitar work from guitarist Larry Frazier adds to the tracks, as he often follows McGriff with wonderful upbeat jazzy riffs which defines this as a nice little christmas gem.
Great CD!
