"I love Lena Horn. I love jazzy retro Christmas albums. This one is retro without being kitsch'y. Lena's voice is so sexy and sophisticated. It made me want to drink champagne out of a coupe and put on a skinny tie. It inspired me to have a cocktail party. Why did'nt I find this one sooner."
Amazing holiday music from one of the best

"Lena Horne has enjoyed fame and fortune; she deserves every bit of praise she ever got. Lena can sing beautifully, too; and that's readily apparent on this excellent Christmas album. The quality of the sound is excellent and the artwork is nicely done.

"Jingle All The Way" starts the album with a very creative and somewhat jazzy arrangement; Lena's excellent diction enhances her performance all the more and that strong musical arrangement complements her singing quite well. "The Christmas Song" sounds heavenly in Lena's capable hands; the percussion and the strings work wonders for this ballad as Lena sings this to perfection--and beyond! I love it. In addition, Lena does justice to the playful "Winter Wonderland;" she aces this as effortlessly as if it were mere breathing--but of course we know it really wasn't all that easy. Lena's talent always carries her through.

"White Christmas" is gorgeous when Lena Horne sings it faultlessly; this melancholy song has just a touch of optimism to it when Lena does this one up right! "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" has a fine arrangement and Lena delivers this like the pro she is and always will be! Listen also for the very moving song entitled "The Little Drummer Boy;" Lena really makes this a highlight of the album with her very sensitive treatment of this ballad.

"Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer" is another classic; Lena delivers this with panache and I've rarely heard a better version of this song than the way Lena does it. "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?" is both romantic and easy on the ear; and listen for a fantastic rendition of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" charms me with its natural beauty and Lena makes this one shine bright.

"Silent Night" gets a most sensitive interpretation by Lena who really opens up to sing this with grace and elegance; and the album ends with Lena Horne performing "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town." What a fine ending for the album! Lena never sounded better and this upbeat tune sports an amazing musical arrangement that makes it all the better.

Lena Horne will always be a star; albums like this make me confident of that. I recommend this for her fans; and anyone who enjoys wonderful holiday music would do well to add this CD to their music collection."
