There aren't a heck of a lot of Christmas Bossa Nova CDs out there, but of the few that I have, this is my favorite! Great guitar playing, and back-up. Authentic Bossa rhythm section, inlcuding Gilberto style rhythm guitar. This is just a tad better than Vinnie Zummo's Christmas CD, which is a close second. If you love bossa nova, you MUST get this CD!

I love bossa nova music and I love Christmas music, so I thought this would be a great CD to add to my Xmas collection. While it is a welcome addition, after a couple listens, it doesn't fare with the tough competition( I have alot of Christmas cds...)I'm sure most folks who buy this will like it and will rate it 4 or 5 stars but personally, I must go with 3. When I discovered this here on Amazon, I was exicted and was hoping it would have a "Jobim" Christmas feel. Unfortunately, I'm getting a "Kenny G." Christmas feel, when I listen to some of the songs. Prior to purchasing, I listened to the sampler and did not get that vibe...Some of the songs ARE nice, but anything Kenny G., is a mood killer for me. No offense but I'm not a fan of Mr. G's "talents" and he annoys the you know what out of me - just my opinion...Perhaps I will take advantage of modern technology, edit and make a best of cd...

My best description or name for this CD would be Kenny G. meets Christmas meets Bossa Nova.

I love Christmas music, but frankly, I was getting a little bored with Bing, Dean, Perry, and even Placido and Wynton. Looking for something different? Maybe not until next Christmas, but this a super addition to anyone's Christmas music collection. The music smooth but lively. Easily my favorite CD this past Christmas.

I am big fan of Christmas Jazz and this collection puts a nice tropical swing in the traditional holiday favorites.

I was extremely underwhelmed and disappointed to discover that not all bossa nova is good. This album sounds like elevator music...or muzak. As a lover of bossa nova, I was hoping for something more dynamic and interesting, something smooth but not flat. Something that would sound more Brazilian than "Blah-zillion." As solely background noise, this album passes. But if I'm actually listening to the music, my mind wanders to what I hoped the album would be. One of the things I love most about Christmas music is that it inspires so many creative interpretations and covers, any any music genre you can imagine. This album, however, is a missed opportunity.

This is a very pleasant effort in merging bossa nova rhythms with Christmas songs. It would be perfect to play as background music at a holiday party or to listen to closely while enjoying a hot cider or glass of wine. I purchased this and a few other of Jack Jezzro's CDs a few years back, as I enjoy a nicely played acoustic guitar. Mr. Jezzro is a very accomplished musician who plays with restraint, a great touch, and much good taste. The songs on this CD, although done rhythmically, are performed in a mellow style. There is nothing here that will hit you like a bucket of ice water, yet the music is, for the most part, not boring. In addition to bass and drums, Mr. Jezzro is accompanied on some of the tunes by a softly played trumpet, soprano sax or tenor sax ,and piano. Fortunately, the additional musicians play with restraint. There are no harsh tones. This is relaxing music.

Recommended, especially if you favor soft Brazilian rhythms on occasion. Despite the added bossa nova elements, the music never loses its traditional Christmas feeling. I give it 3.5/3.75 stars.

Fabulous album. Bright, upbeat, not as heavy as some jazz albums can be. My favorite instrumental Christmas album by far. Equally perfect for chilling out, or reading, or cooking, or playing in the background for parties. Bossa Nova Retro Cool Christmas is excellent, too.
