Muze PNote This is a well-rounded set of Christmas songs played by some of Verve's top artists. Shirley Horn, Betty Carter and Abbey Lincoln take two vocals apiece, and the seven instrumentals feature such major players as trumpeters Roy Hargrove and Nicholas Payton, bassist Christian McBride, guitarist Mark Whitfield (showcased on "Soulful Jingle Bells") and pianist Stephen Scott. There is enough variety throughout the date to hold one's interest, with the versions of "Frosty the Snowman," "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" and "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" being among the hotter interpretations. ~ Scott Yanow
