Merry Christmas, we gather and celebrate the great commercial holiday
folks, lets not neglect the music from bygone days.
Here is a guilty pleasure. This '53 classic by Eartha Kitt is remarkable for both her reading and
the post bop arrangement. This one has been re-recorded many times with different arrangements. This one has the small jazz assemble charm. Hear Henry Mancini?

Okay, here's my all-time favorite commercial Christmas record.
Chet, more than any single individual defined American pop music, right up to today.
Chet-more important than Bing Crosby and Sinatra? Jackson and Prince?
