CD Reviews

Merry Chuck Berry
Johnny Heering | Bethel, CT United States | 12/19/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very short (27 minutes) CD featuring Christmas songs recorded for Chess Records. Of course, one reason for the short running time may be that Chess Records didn't actually release all that many Christmas records. But they did release Christmas albums by Kenny Burrell and the Soulful Strings, neither of which is represented here. That's a shame, because the Kenny Burrell album is an acknowledged classic. Anyway, the music that is here is good. "Run Rudolph Run" by Chuck Berry is the best known of the songs included here, but there are many other fine selections. The Moonglows, The O'Jays, the Ramsey Lewis Trio and several gospel groups turn in good performances. This CD is a worthy addition to your Christmas collection, especially since it's so cheap."
Great Christmas Party Album

"Ordered this CD with expedited shipping as I had pulled out my Xmas CD's and it was lost. It is really an excellent compilation of jazz and soul yuletide music and it really gets you into the holiday party mood."
Christmas Music for the In Crowd!

"WOW! Christmas music does not get any better than this! The jazz is so swingin' you'll almost forget it's holiday music! And that is a good thing!!!! Anyway, this is my absolute favorite Christmas cd and it never gets old!"
