"Trio West Plays Holiday Songs, Vol. 2" (Yummyhouse) - More piano-bass-drums cooking, with rhythmic revisions such as "O Tannenbaum Funk" and "Silent Night Samba."
Alexis Cole, "The Greatest Gift" (Motema) - Now vocalist with the U.S. Military Academy Jazz Knights Big Band, Cole recorded this album with various well-known jazz instrumentalists and singers from her civilian days. A knock-out.
The Airmen of Note, "Cool Yule" (U.S. Air Force Band) - The spirit of Glenn Miller's Army Air Corps dance band weaves through these hip (and occasionally wickedly humorous) performances in concert with modern arranging currents. Grant Langford - hometown: Chapel Hill - plays tenor saxophone in the group.
"Jazzy Brass for the Holidays" (DBCD) - A sextet (brass quartet, bass and drums) led by trumpeter Eddie Allen sounds both traditional and deeply rooted in jazz integrity here.
Hot Club of San Francisco, "Hot Club Cool Yule" (Azica) - A quintet of violin, string bass (doubling on trumpet) and three guitars conjures up the 1930s and the Christmas album Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli and the Quintet of the Hot Club of France never made. -- Newsobserver.com, Owen Cordle, December 6, 2009
