Editorial Reviews

"Brian Setzer combines his big band leanings with his Stray Cat upbringing to create the year's best all-around holiday album. With its blasts of brass, fat jazz guitar work, and smooth retro lounge crooning, this disc will get any party on its feet." - NEW YORK POST.

5.0 out of 5 stars Destined To Become A Christmas Classic! December 18, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Brian Setzer and his orchestra never sounded better than they do on this Christmas album. Traditional tunes like "Jingle Bells," "Winter Wonderland" and "Sleigh Ride" sound reinvigorated with their big band arrangements. They really rock, with Brian's scorching guitar and expressive vocals leading the way. Brian's versions of "Blue Christmas" and "Santa Claus Is Back In Town" rival the original versions. That's saying quite a lot, since the originals were done by Elvis. Ann-Margret's vocals on "Baby It's Cold Outside" could melt a blizzard, and mesh perfectly with Brian's voice. The centerpiece of the album is the instrumental "Nutcracker Suite." Over seven minutes, the Tchaikovsky Christmas classic is performed in a big band style. This reinvention is nothing short of amazing. The one song Brian Setzer wrote, "So They Say It's Christmas," is a moving ballad which slows the tempo down for the big finale. Brian's reverential versions of "O Holy Night" and "The Amens" would bring a tear to a glass eye. Whether you like sacred or secular Christmas songs, there's something for everybody in this album. I give it my highest recommendation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Merry Swingin Christmas! October 27, 2002
Format:Audio CD
BSO fans will definitely not be disappointed with this album. I mean, "Oh what fun it is to ride in a '57 Chevrolet"? How can you go wrong? :) And if you are not already a BSO fan and you're just looking for a fun holiday album, you'll enjoy it as well. He does stay traditional with some tracks like "O Holy Night," and "Baby, It's Cold Outside" and they sound fantastic, too. They bring out that smooth, crooner side of his voice. I think a wide range of people will really enjoy this CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Christmas Cool! December 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Released again this year for Christmas, the great front man for the rockabilly/neo-swing revolution does it up right with a set of Holiday classic retro-rocked tracks, that fill the Christmas season with an injection of high octane fun and mayhem. The Brian Setzer Orchestra is back-and Boogie Woogie Christmas (Surfdog) is exactly what your stocking ordered!

If you want high energy in your Kringle, you're going to thrill for Brian's new interpretation of "Jingle Bells," and really get excited for the surf guitar vibe of "Sleigh Ride." There's some fun surprises, like the duet with Ann Margret on "Baby It's Cold Outside," and a special tribute to Les Brown by way of "The Nutcracker Suite." Even the slower, more thoughtful pieces like "O Holy Night" are electric in their contemporary energy.

Accompanying booklet contains complete song lyrics and band credits. This is the hot rod of Christmas CDs-a real must for the holiday season!

5.0 out of 5 stars Shades of Johnny Mercer December 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This Christmas album has such a big sound that it makes other Christmas albums pale in comparison. Influenced by Johnny Mercer, Les Brown, Louis Prima, Bobby Darin and Duane Eddy, Brian Setzer is a retro genius. Standout numbers include a swinging "Nutcracker Suite", "Cactus Christmas" (think Cow-Cow Boogie), and an unexpectedly touching "O Holy Night". This album epitomizes Christmas cool. Highly, highly recommended. Play in conjunction with Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Leon Redbone for a snazzy, jazzy retro Christmas!

5.0 out of 5 stars This cd swings! November 27, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the best Christmas cd I have heard in a while. It is worth the price just to hear BSO's take on the Nutcracker Suite. Everyone at your Christmas party will be up and dancing if you play this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Coolest Christmas CD Ever! October 28, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is the coolest Christmas music I've heard! The BSO really comes through on jazzing up old favorites. Brian's guitar playing is awesome as usual, and he really gives a wonderful vocal performance too, especially on "O Holy Night". My favorite track is "Santa Claus Is Back In Town". It is just so cool, and bluesy. I own a lot (and I mean a LOT) of Christmas CD's but this one really blew me away!! If you like something different than just the same old stuff, this is the CD for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unreal! You have to get this one! January 4, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Cannot begin to say how great this CD really is! If you like swing, you'll love this one. My two little girls, ages 6 & 3 just love it. When they want me to put it on, they ask for the "kickin music". This is the best CD every from Brian and the gang.

5.0 out of 5 stars BSO Rocks as Always November 1, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Brian has done it again. I anticipated this CD coming out for a while and was in no way disappointed. The guitar playing rocks as usual and the song selections are great. His guitar tone is varied just a bit from the 68 Comeback Special album but I like it. I think that he is using the neck pickup a bit more. His voice also sounds incredible as usual. This is a great holiday CD to get you in the mood for the season. Hats off to the master.

Meh. The guy is trying too hard to re-create the '50s, and ends up with a fuzzy photocopy of the era, but not the real thing.
