CD Reviews

Doesn't "Swing" as much as it claims to
John Sloan | right there | 01/13/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The main selling point for this disc has to be its bargain basement price. I would probably have called it 2 stars if I had paid regular CD prices. The simple fact is, it is not really as "swinging" as its title claims. Some of the tracks are downright dull. The best tracks are the three that are taken from "The Nutcracker" ("Dance of the Suger Plum Fairies" by the Larry Clinton Orchestra, "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers" by Red Nichols & His Five Pennies, and "The Nutcracker Suite" by the Les Brown Orchestra. Another worthwhile track is "He'll Be Coming Down the Chimney" by the Guy Lombardo Trio. On the whole, it is about half a swinging big band Christmas."
Lacking greatly in swing
Greg Brady | Capital City | 01/19/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I'll second JohnSloan's comments. Not a whole lot of swinging here. As he says, the best cuts are the ones from Nutcracker. The Teagarden version of "Christmas Song" won't make anyone forget Nat Cole's...or Mel Torme's for that matter.

For $5.98 it's not pricey...it just depends on how much you want to spend on the 4 tunes (the first number is OK) of note here. You may want to get something else if you're paying new price, but a used copy of this would probably be worthwhile."
