What will Santa Claus say, when he finds everybody swinging?

"Christmas hasn't been the same since I discovered this fabulous box set. Jazz has been forevermore infused into Jingle Bells and Bing Crosby. (Although Bing joins in on "Gone Fishin'.")What a collection! Louis Armstrong, Fats Domino, Lena Horne...every disk is a powerhouse of music. I am no Jazz expert, but I know how to enjoy good music. "What Will Santa Claus Say (When He Finds Everybody Swingin'?)" is my favorite. It is as swinging a song as the title suggests. Mildred Bailey does good service to "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm" "The Night Before Christmas" as read by Louis Armstrong is really fun.I can't imagine a better box set. Each of the three disks is worth the price on its own."
Don't buy this set!

"If this set actually contained the advertised songs I would have given it five stars. However, when you receive it, the songs are all different! If you are looking for a general Christmas jazz set, this one is OK ... But if you are looking for those specific songs I would look elsewhere."
