Editorial Reviews

Tony Bennett s warm style is especially winning on classic Christmas material. The Classic Christmas features 17 songs from 4 of Bennett s Christmas Albums,
hand-picked by Tony Bennett himself, as well as the previously unreleased "What Child Is This."

The Classic Christmas includes 5 tracks from the Grammy-nominated A Swingin' Christmas (featuring the Count Basie Big Band). A beautiful arrangement
on "I' ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm" (which also happens to be a rare duet with his daughter, Antonia Bennett) compliments the great accomplishment
of treating standards, like "I ll Be Home for Christmas" and "My Favorite Things" -- as though they were ripe for the re-imagining (which, of course, they are).

Five tracks are pulled from Bennett s 1968 release, Snowfall: The Tony Bennett Christmas Album, which features a playful orchestral backup, courtesy of
Robert Fanon. The versions of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and "The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)" emphasize the
romantic elements to great effect, while Bennett s take on My Favorite Things is superlative. Where so many artists just re-make the same holiday album
every other year, Bennett has opted to append new material to his sole original.

The London Symphony Orchestra lend support on 4 more traditional favorites; "Deck The Halls," "O Little Town Of Bethlehem," "O Come All Ye Faithful" and
"Silent Night"

Format: Audio CD
Seventeen of these eighteen tracks have been selected by the vocalist from his catalog of albums and compilation appearances on Snowfall: The Tony Bennett Christmas Album (1968), The Playground (1998), Our Favorite Things (2001), Christmas with Tony Bennett (2002) and A Swingin' Christmas (2008). The album's one previously unreleased title is a Marion Evans arrangement of the traditional "What Child is This." Bennett appears in orchestral, big band and small combo settings, and though the original albums can still be found, this provides a nice sampling across forty years of his stylish takes on holiday standards. Bennett sings with a jazzy cool unparalleled by his peers or followers, and together with some hot charts (particularly those for the Basie band), he gives new life to these holiday chestnuts. The Bennett fanatic in your family may be expecting the monumental 73-CD Complete Collection under the tree, but the rest of the family will be satisfied by this warm collection of classics. 3-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings.

To review a work by Mr. Bennett is like trying to review the golden hours of sunset after a day of rain that washes all the impurities from the sky. Words fail. I sit back and enjoy it. Each hearing brings different insights and different memories.

Let your fingers run, not walk, to buy this cd or any recording by this national treasure

Tony Bennett's voice is amazing -- smooth, understated elegance. This is a holiday CD that won't disappoint you. Almost seems a pity to listen to it only in the month of December!

I ordered three albums for my Mother for Christmas. She has always liked Tony Bennett so much. She said the Christmas songs are just excellent, and she is so pleased to have it. She said she has been playing the album on high while she does other things around the house. So thanks Amazon for having this one in stock and shipping to my dear Mother. Only disappointment was it did not arrive until the day AFTER Christmas, which was blamed on the snow storms. This was sent by Fed-Ex/Post Office and did not timely arrive. Everything I ordered that was shipped by UPS arrived on time....maybe that tells Amazon which service to use. Anyway, my Mother is happy, and is singing up a storm with Tony. Mark

According to the note on the Amazon website, Tony Bennett hand picked the selections for this CD. If that's true, I'll give him credit, he did a good job. Songs are from his 60s Christmas album, his 2008 CD with the Count Basie orchestra and his 2002 CD with the London Symphony that he recorded for Hallmark. Two songs are from other sources. What Child is This was previously unreleased and Christmas In Herald Square is from a 90s CD called The Playground. Tony sounds in good voice and on key. Favorites of mine are My Favorite Things, The Christmas Song, O Come All Ye Faithful and Winter Wonderland. He still has what it takes. Nice CD to listen to.

Tony Bennett. is perhaps one of the most well known and liked singers of all time . Though he is getting up there in age he still can hit those notes with ease and complacency. Tony 's latest album is a must collectable Duets and Christmas songs. Tony Bennett is like fine wine and a good filet mignon steak. It's What you listen to when the day is going good for you and you want the best music to listen to in your automobile.

I like to hear tony in person and say how satisfied I am with his albums and the people he had the chance to work with. Tony here's to you may you never stop singing.

Music fans will not need an introduction to Tony Bennett. Younger and potential buyers just need to know that the album is second to none. In my opinion this is the number one Christmas album. Buy it , listen and enjoy.

I bought this for my Mother for Christmas.

Since I'm over at her house often, I have heard the entire album and I enjoy listening to it.

Good mix of songs. Supposedly these tracks were handpicked by Tony Bennett himself from what I've read. It looks like he picked the winners.
