  • Credits

    The 36 performances on the double-CD Swinging Songs for Santa are taken from radio broadcasts, all of which took place around Christmas time. Unfortunately no dates or personnel are given so the dates given in this review are approximate. The music ranges from swing to dance music, reverent versions of Christmas songs to novelties. Among the highlights are a couple duets by Bing Crosby and Ella Fitzgerald ("Silver Bells" and "White Christmas"), Al Jolson's version of "White Christmas," an amusing "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" by Bing, Rosemary Clooney, and Johnny Mercer, Tex Beneke singing a happy "Jingle Bells," and Les Brown's band on "Swingin' the Nutcracker Suite." This nostalgic set is not essential, but it certainly has the Christmas spirit. ~ Scott Yanow
