Product Description

Christmas Coll ~ Yule B Swingin

Amazon.com

Louis Prima's "What Will Santa Claus Say When He Finds Everybody Swinging?" opens this 1998 collection, and 13 cuts later it closes with the patron saint of highballers everywhere, Dean Martin, crooning "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm." In between, there's Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Kay Starr, Johnny Desmond, and Nancy Wilson. Also along are some truly big bands, including Glenn Miller, the eternally hip Louis Armstrong & the Commanders, Les Brown & His Band of Renown, Lionel Hampton, Pete Fountain, and Ralph Marterie & His Orchestra turning out a catchy little tune called "Dig That Crazy Santa Claus." If you think this is just pure nostalgia, you probably think Claus is an imposter, too. --Martin Keller

Last year this was the holiday cd I kept in my car. Everyone who heard it wanted to know either 1) where I got it 2) could I pick one up for them or 3) if I would let them borrow it. Well, needless to say, I hung on to it. This year I bought a pile of them to give as gifts. Regardless if you're a notch baby, a boomer, or a GenXer - if you're an American living in the 20th Century, you've got to love Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Glenn Miller, Les Brown, and Pete Fountain. This cd doesn't just swing...it rocks !

Many of the Christmas albums the proclaim themselves swing seem either to include a few swing numbers mixed in with other styles or simply feature mediocre selections; this one lives up to its name and includes many better-than-average tracks. Louis Prima's "What Will Santa Claus Say . . ." starts things off on the right track with the real thing and plenty of fun. Satch's "Cool Yule" is classic. The "Jingle Bells" featured here is the better of the two Glenn Miller versions that float around. Can you go wrong with Ella Fitzgerald? A few of these selections pop up on dozens of compilations (Satcho's, Ella's, and Deano's numbers), but there are some pleasant surprises here, too. In particular, Pete Fountain's "Medley" is a delight and swings with the best of them. If you're lookin' to swing this holiday, this is probably the CD to get.

The previous reviewer from Finland was pretty harsh with their review. Unless you don't understand this American swing music as well as these versions of top Christmas songs, you should find them very enjoyable indeed. In fact, I myself liked this collection so much I would love to see a volume 2 come along in the near future. You don't have to get up & dance to them, but they're a guaranteed hit if you put this on at your next holiday gathering or office party. Enjoy & may all your Christmas dreams come true.

Now this is the type of Christmas album I've been waiting for and hope there are more like it! Not a bad tune in the bunch, either. You get classic swingin' versions of holiday hits by Lionel Hampton, Glenn Miller, Peggy Lee, Nancy Wilson & many other greats. Hope to see a Part 2 next year! Great CD for your Christmas party, whether at home or at the office!

This is such a great Christmas gem! You won't be disappointed! I bought it when it came out in the 90's and have bought a second copy because my first one was stepped on! The second song on the cd by Louis Armstrong is so great to dance to...this cd will add pep to your Christmas prep!

Format: Audio CD
The contents offer a wide range of swinging styles from Louis Prima's opening track, which dates all the way back to 1936. The sound quality is decent enough, but what passes for liner notes (a two page listing of the selections and that's it) provides somewhat confusing dates for only three which shows that track 8 by Kay Starr goes back to 1959, while tracks 13 (Nancy Wilson) and 14 (Dean Martin) date from 1963 and, again, 1959. This I question as sources show Kay recorded her song at Capitol in 1950, Nancy Wilson released her side in 1965, and we see the Dean Martin entry for the first time on record also in 1965.

I do know that, of those released as singles, only two made any national charts as indicated in the following list where I show label details and year of release. Despite the confusion, this IS a happy little album sure to bring sheer delight to both young and old during the holiday season.

1. What Will Santa Claus Say When He Finds Everybody Swinging? - Louis Prima & His New Orleans Gang - Vocalion 3376 - Nov 1936
2. Cool Yule - Louis Armstrong with The Commanders - Decca 28943 - 1953
3. Jingle Bells - Glenn Miller & His Orchestra with vocals by Tex Beneke, Ernie Caceres & The Modernaires - # 5 Dec 1941 - Bluebird 11353
4. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas - Ella Fitzgerald with the Frank DeVol Orchestra - from her 1960 LP "Ella Wishes You A Swinging Christmas" (Verve VS 64042)
5. Dig That Crazy Santa Claus - Ralph Marterie & His Orchestra - Lola Dee vocal - Mercury 70493 - 1954
6. Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! - Les Brown & His Band Of Renown - Coral 9-60820 - 1952
7. Merry Christmas, Baby - Lionel Hampton & His Orchestra - Decca 27325 - 1950

My husband and I picked up the CD a couple of years ago on the sale rack. What a find! We love it, and I am buying it to send to my mother this year for Christmas. This one will please multiple generations - our kids love it too!
