5.0 out of 5 stars Smokin'!! November 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This CD absolutely smokes! A collection of incredibly, hot, innovative latin-jazz interpretations of holiday classics. This CD is not designed for quiet fireside contemplation. I played it last year while we trimmed the tree and the entire family ended up bopping around the family room. Truly a lot of fun!

NOTE TO HEF: This is the 21st century. Playboy bunnies on the cover don't sell christmas CD's anymore, at least not to women. Hopefully no one will be turned off by the cover art before giving this great CD a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Playboy's Latin Jazz Christmas: A Not So Silent Night December 17, 2005
Format:Audio CD
A ton of fun!!!! A very cool Christmas jazz disc mixed with "Rice and Beans!" That only the artists on the disc can master...However...the only person missing besides Santa...was my man Paquito d'Rivera...A must holiday disc for everyone's Christmas collection!!!! Santa told me to forget the cookies and bring on the Corn Bread!!! And "A NOT SO Silent NIGHT"

5.0 out of 5 stars A really fun CD November 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This CD absolutely smokes! A collection of incredibly, hot, innovative latin-jazz interpretations of holiday classics. This CD is not designed for quiet fireside contemplation. I played it last year while we trimmed the tree and the entire family ended up bopping around the family room. Truly a lot of fun!

PLEASE NOTE: This CD was put out a couple of years ago as "Playboy's Latin Jazz Christmas: A Not So Silent Night" but with a different cover. That's great because the original had a Playboy Bunny on the cover which may have discouraged some people from checking it out. That was a shame because it's an absolutely wonderful CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars "salsa spices with just the right yuletide ingredient" October 12, 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you love Christmas music (and all of us do), the Latin jazz artist under the Concord banner, give all their holiday fans that "Yuletide" feeling...eleven tracks with your favorite entertainer sharing that special time of the year with you.
The headliners include ~ Ed Calle, Caribbean Jazz Project, Sheila E., Pete Escovedo, Jim Gasior, Poncho Sanchez, Arturo Sandoval and Dan Warner serve up a Christmas menu, that we can cherish now and years to come...as we sit around the fireplace with our family, friends and loved ones!
Total Time: 56:58 on 11 Tracks ~ Playboy/Concord Jazz PBD-7501-2 ~ (2001)

4.0 out of 5 stars HO-HO-HO HAS NEVER SOUNDED MORE HOT-HOT-HOT May 7, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Muy caliente! Sizzle doesn't get spicier than this collection of Latin-infused versions of holiday favorites: "Silent Night" as a cha cha, "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town" as a mambo. Ho-ho-ho has never sounded more hot-hot-hot!

4.0 out of 5 stars Auturo Sandoval! January 23, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I like Latin music. And the idea of a Latin Christmas album interested me. Then when I found out that Auturo Sandoval, the highly talented trumpet player, is on this recording, I had to have it. He does not disappoint. With dexterity and those high screech tones he lights up this recording. And it is FUN.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can I listen to this all year long? February 3, 2010
By D. Owen
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I hate to be caught listening to Christmas music all year round, but this is the CD to make me do it. This is more than just great Christmas music, it is great music. I love the job the liner notes do in educating me on the finer points of Latin jazz. Listening to the artists on this CD has led me to look for more music from several of them. Some of my favorites don't have a lot out there, so I guess I'll just listen to Christmas music in July.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD. AAAAAAA+++++++ December 3, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Playboy's Latin Jazz Christmas: A Not So Silent Night is fifty-six minutes and fifty-eight seconds long and was released on July 24, 2001. This is a change of pace from your typical Christmas album. With the Latin jazz twist to it, A Not So Holy Night is more upbeat. Only two of the songs are sung: Santa Baby and Feliz Navidad; the other nine songs are instrumental. If you are looking for something different, then this CD is for you. Playboy's Latin Jazz Christmas: A Not So Silent Night gets an AAAAA+++++.
