It was never offically Christmas until my mother hooked up the Jingle Bells door chime and my father put Ramsey Lewis " Sound of Christmas" on our HiFi. This is a fantastic holiday treat. I have loads of Christmas music, but I place this recording very high in my December rotation. The strings that play on" What Are You Doing New Years Eve?" and the bouncy "Sleigh Ride" take me back to the Wonder Years of my youth. I believe it will become an evergreen in your collection. Happy Holidays or as Ramsey puts it...Merry Christmas Baby !

This 1961 re-issue is timeless. If you appreciate Wes Montgomery's period with orchestration, you will enjoy this instrumental jazz masterpiece. For the purist, the first half of the CD is sans strings.

I bought a previously released version of this CD at a used CD store. I fell in love with it then, but it had some obvious physical defects. So when it was re-released, I had to have a new copy. The previously released CD had 11 reviews on Amazon, all 5 stars. This is the second review on the re-release, and both are 5 stars. That ought to tell you something. This is simply one of the BEST Christmas Jazz CDs ever. If you are looking for some great jazzy Christmas music, you have found it!

This review was begun in 1962 when I bought the LP in St. Paul in school. My classmates thought it cool, and later my kids knew the Christmas season had arrived when Dad put it on during dinner. Now I'm going to make sure all my grandkids have their own copy. Ramsey Lewis' "Sounds" takes its place with the great standards of the season. Simply because it's honest, spiritual, and fun to listen to. Some combination.

This is the one Xmas CD you have to get. Ramsey swings through all the Xmas standards at his toe tapping best. Xmas Blues has been my favorite since I first heard it. This recording was made when the trio was at it's best, and happy to be playing together. For fourty three years no other jazz Xmas album has ever been better.

My parents played this album over and over every year at Christmastime, and I fell in love with the music. I bought my own copy once I moved out of the house.
This album keeps your feet tapping, and some of it is danceable. It's also great for background music while decorating the tree, enjoying a late night drink on the sofa with friends, or to play during a party. My most fondest and nostalgic memories at Christmastime were of decorating the house and making cookies while listening to this album. It's a great way to get young children listening to and appreciating jazz.

For those of us who grew up "back in the day", this album and it's sequel "More Sounds of Christmas" were Christmastime staples in all our parents' homes. This cd brings back wonderful memories of how life really was(as opposed to how tv and the movies depict it).The music is great fun ("Merry Christmas, Baby", "Sleigh Ride", and Here comes Santa Claus", for examples) devoid of the pretentiousness we've grown used to in jazz and even R&B. Ramsey Leiws made it sound sooo easy...the mark of a true genius.

I agree with the other reviewers that this is an awesome Jazz Christmas CD. The Ramsey Lewis trio do some great jazz versions of classic Christmas songs. You will definitely find yourself tapping your toe along with the band as they put their signature sound to these songs. So, pour a cup of eggnog, and put this CD in your stereo for some smooth Christmas music. We play this CD every year at our Christmas party, and guests always ask who it is so they can buy their own copy. A must Christmas album for any fan of jazz.
