Like Christmas songs but seriously tired of predictability and schmaltz? ULTIMATE JAZZ CHRISTMAS is the answer--it's an inspired mixture of icons and contenders, the classics delivered with creativity and soulfulness. This set has amazing scope too--a ballad by one of the greatest crooners (and pianists) ever, Nat King Cole; great mellow jazz singers Nancy Wilson and Dianne Reeves; Norah Jones, a category-defying vocalist; Count Basie, a king of big band swing, and the lesser-known but hearty, blues-drenched hard bop Texas tenor saxophonist Booker Ervin. This earnestly assembled baker's dozen of Holiday melodies should please both hipster and traditionalist alike.
