One of the most collectible Christmas packages out there! This is the only album to include all six Christmas sides Louis recorded for Decca- White Christmas; Zat You, Santa Claus; Christmas in New Orleans; Christmas Night in Harlem; Cool Yule , and Winter Wonderland -plus other yuletide nuggets unearthed from the label's vaults. For example: May Everyday Be Christmas Louis Jordan; Silent Night Dinah Washington; Santa Baby Eartha Kitt; The Christmas Song Mel Torme, and more. 14 tracks.

This is a Christmas set which really stands out from the pack. For one thing the material is great, and on top of that, it has great sound quality...finish it off with some inspired cover art, and it's a can't-miss package. All of the Armstrong tracks are fabulous, and feature a variety of settings, such as Gordon Jenkins' lush snowscapes for White Christmas & Winter Wonderland, and Benny Carter's swinging orchestra on Christmas in New Orleans. 'Zat You, Santa Claus? with The Commanders is a hoot, with a paranoid Louis locked up in his Christmas cabin, wondering what all those funny noises are outside (It's interesting to note that this "'Zat You" doesn't have any whistle or wind overdubs as it does on Laserlight's Christmas Through The Years). Louis also delivers an infectious Christmas Night In Harlem, and by the time he blows some exuberant trumpet on Cool Yule, feelings of holiday joy will have completely overtaken you. Some of these tunes by Louis are actually pretty rare, so it's great to have them here in good sound quality.
Other goodies featured include a bluesy Silent Night by Dinah Washington, a live The Christmas Song by Mel Torme (who co-authored it), and a rare and hypnotic Peggy Lee tune called It's Christmas Time Again. Lionel Hampton brings the good vibes on the blues number Merry Christmas, Baby, Eartha Kitt signs in with her amusing Santa Baby, and Duke Ellington righteously jazzes up Jingle Bells. Lena Horne has it "on good authority" that Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town, and Louis Jordan turns in a bluesy and soulful May Everyday Be Christmas.
My review is over now, but before I get into the nog, I'd like to share with you my recipe for the ultimate Louis Armstrong Yuletide disc.

Bought this in 2003/same cover/same artists/same tracks - diff title "The Christmas Collection" and diff order of songs?! Weird! Awesome collection of Christmas songs. Who needs the norm, anyway? Exceptionally clear recordings. I love Cool Yule. This cd goes on when I'm home alone & want to SING OUT LOUD! You will too. Add this to your collection.

Every singer and big band on this cd makes a fine contribution to Louis Armstrong's holiday cd. My favorite tune here is May Everyday Be Christmas by Louis Jordan & His Orchestra. This guy really rocked! An extremely enjoyable album you'll want to listen to long after the holiday season ends.

You can't go wrong with this CD! This swinging Christmas compilation includes a number of jazzy holiday tunes performed by some of the greatest artists in traditional jazz. The classic Christmas carols (including The DUKE playing "Jingle Bells" and Mel Torme's own version of "The Christmas Song") are ballanced by some fairly unique swinging treats (such as Cool Yule and "Zat You, Santa Claus" performed by Satchmo).
This CD is sure to liven up any holiday party.

Another great Christmas collection featuring the genius himself, Louis Armstrong as the star. This cd should be played along with the Hipster's Holiday collection-so what if some of the same tunes are on each cd-it's party time! Put this on at your next holiday party & a fun time is guaranteed for all. Highly recommended.

Who doesn't love Louis Armstrong? Now imagine him doing Christmas tunes.

I'll let the "experts" tell you about the musical quality of each songs, but that's not what I'm going to do. I'm going to tell you what a great deal it is to buy this as a USED CD.

My rule of thumb is, if it's available on used CD, and I like more than 3 songs on it, it's worth it to get it mailed to me. I can't tell you how many times I've had to redownload songs because something happened to the quality of it. Sure, now iTunes and Amazon.com will let you redownload songs when there's a problem. Or rather, iTunes makes that really easy. I still haven't figured out why Amazon.com isn't on board with that yet....

But I digress! Having a hard copy of the disc is a great way to save yourself the pain and agony of redownloading it again. For $6, you can't beat that price!

I don't care who you are. Once you start this music playing your eyes will lighten up and you will understand, really understand, why Louis Armstrong was such a star. This doesn't just have power, it has style. He surrounded himself with the best, played the best, and created an album of sheer delight. If you are looking for just another traditional Christmas carols sing-a-long; this isn't it. If you want the season to be bright, with joy sufficient to dash away, dash away, dash away all the dark cold of the winter, then permit this powerhouse of a musician to burn musical bonfires that will keep you warm through the holidays. A true classic.

My wife picked this out, at first on the apple store, and as a apple "fan-boy" I almost bought it, but then I saw that they won't sell the complete album, you have to buy each song, which would dive the cost of this album to about $15. what a rip off, not to mention inconvenient, so I came to amazon and found the album for less than $10.. sold! 4 stars because there are a few tracks on there that I would rather skip.
