Synopsis

Amazon.com
If you only know Jackie Gleason from The Honeymooners, you may be surprised to learn of his renown as a bandleader and forefather of what has come to be called lounge music. Gleason's easy-on-the-ears music is redolent of swank parties and conviviality--concepts that are as timeless as his renditions of such smooth favorites as "I'll Be Home for Christmas" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." Unlike many name performers, he also stretches out a bit on this collection, extending the holiday vibe to a brace of wintry (but not specifically Christmas-tinged) tunes, including "I've Got Your Love to Keep Me Warm." If you'd rather be sipping a martini than another cup of eggnog, this is the Christmas album for you. --David Sprague

CD Reviews

First-Rate Christmas Romance!
Jodi Neuman | USA | 10/11/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Some of the most beautiful Christmas music I've ever heard. Put this in your CD player, turn down the lights and light the Christmas tree. Share a cup of cocoa with your special someone and experience the full effect. Extremely romantic!"
Beautiful, Romantic,

"I can't remember the first Christmas I heard this album. I know it was at least 40 years ago and the record(s) has been played every year since. It was and still is the Best, most Beautiful Christmas music I've ever heard. We (our family) have worn out two vinyl records and are thrilled to see it out on CD. We still turn out all the lights, light the candles and tree and just sit and listen over and over. The music will soothe, relax and gently get you into the Christmas spirit."
Merry Christmas

"This lovely mix of classic Christmas music set me back on my heels the first time I heard it. I was six years old again looking out the picture window at the night snowfall, Mom's Christmas tree twinkling in the dark. What a feeling of calm I get every time I hear this CD."
