Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Sophisticated in its selections and often seductive in its instrumentation, Christmas for Lovers is a must-have collection of renowned classic jazz singers and instrumentalists. Most of the artists here understand that less is more, whether it's Mel Torme doing his eternal "The Christmas Song," Ella Fitzgerald asking "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?," pianist Joe Sample reinventing another time and place with the almost unrecognizable "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," or Yusef Lateef's sax-sparked "Warm Fire." Not to be outdone by the sublime instrumentals of Ramsey Lewis, Kenny Burrell, Oscar Peterson, and Gerry Mulligan and Paul Desmond, there are simply stellar vocal showcases by Abbey Lincoln, Joe Williams, Dinah Washington, and Shirley Horn, whose "The Secret of Christmas" puts the whole maddening holiday in perspective: "It's not the things you do at Christmastime/but the Christmas things you do all year." One of the year's tastiest and brightest. --Martin Keller

If you like your Christmas music with a Jazz approach you will love this 15-track release from Verve, one of the leaders in recorded Jazz. It was released in 2003 to critical acclaim as part of their large "For Lovers" series, with excellent sound reproduction quality for the sides which were recorded between 1953 and 2001. Informative liner notes by Al Young are also a highlight.

Forget that 1-star review from a disgruntled customer who, for some reason, decided to distort the album's overall quality simply because of what was perceived as poor service. It's a 5-star volume all the way.

I recommend this to anyone that likes smooth jazz and wants mood music for Christmas gatherings. Would also make a great stocking stuffer for that special jazz lover...

I purchased Christmas for Lovers as a gift for someone. It arrived with a damaged and broken cd case. I reported and asked that a new case be sent to me. I emphasized that I needed the new cd case before Christmas because it was a gift. Needless to say, I never received the cd case. I am returning the item and asking for a refund. It was quite insensitive on the part of Movie Mars.
