Format: Audio CD
~ "The Christmas Collection" assembles ten performances by established jazz stars extracted from albums previously released on the Prestige label. Recording dates range from 30 November 1953 to 6 July 1970, so sound quality varies from track to track, but only in the case of the Paul Bley track could the recording quality be called distracting. There are three versions of "The Christmas Song" and two versions of "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town". Casual listeners may not enjoy this repetition, but the jazz fan will enjoy the chance to compare styles and interpretations of these Christmas classics. The list of jazz musicians playing on this CD reads like a who's who of 1950's and 1960's jazz. The quality of the performances is uniformly high and in many cases outstanding.
~ Highly recommended for jazz fans, especially at the bargin prices advertised for this CD. Perhaps not so highly recommended for casual listeners looking to add a little jazz to the Christmas collection.
~ The Christmas Song (5:20) - Dexter Gordon with Tommy Flanagan, Larry Ridley, and Alan Dawson. (1970)
~ Greensleeves (5:02) - Bill Smith with Jim Hall, Monty Budwig, and Shelly Manne (1959)
~ Santa Claus Is Coming to Town (3:37) - Paul Bley with Charles Mingus and Art Blakey (1953).
~ Merry Christmas, Baby (6:01) - Don Patterson with Pat Martino and Billy James (1964).
~ The Christmas Song (3:26) - Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis with Shirley Scott, George Duvivier and Arthur Edgehill (1960).
~ The Christmas Song (5:57) - Gene Ammons with Wynton Kelly, George Duvivier, and Rudy Collins (1970).
~ White Christmas (7:05) - Bobby Timmons with Butch Warren and Walter Perkins (1964).

Format: Audio CD
Thanx to the previous reviewers for their insights into the performers and the songs on this album
without whom no one (i.e., me for example) would have the foggiest idea WHAT they could be buying!
Doesn't it ever occur to Amazon independent sellers that potential customers (those are the ones who
spend the *money* to get these discs) might want to know WHO is playing, and WHAT they are playing?
I for one am so tired and disgusted with nameless performers unlisted on CDs with no tune titles to
even consider. Furthermore, I'm also a bit disappointed with Amazon itself for not pointing out this
major gap on the sellers' offerings. Wise up, folks, the profits will be yours!
