Editor's NoteThis NBC Christmas television special featuring Harry Connick, Jr. was shot in October 2003 in the Bowery Savings Building on 42nd Street, New York City. The jazz singer/pianist hosts comedians Nathan Lane and Whoopi Goldberg and singers Marc Anthony and Kim Burrell for an old-fashioned evening of music and sketches, with imaginative jazz arrangements for many of the songs, which include "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," "Frosty the Snowman," "Baby, It's Cold Outside," "Nature Boy," "I'll Be Home for Christmas," "Auld Lang Syne," "Blue Christmas," "Mary's Little Boy Child," "Silver Bells," "I Wonder As I Wander," "The Happy Elf," "I'm Gonna Be the First One," "The Christmas Waltz," "Nothin' New for New Year," "O Little Town of Bethlehem," and "(It Must Have Been) Ol' Santa Claus." Lane and Goldberg each perform in comedy sketches and all three singers collaborate on a novel version of "Silent Night."
