Synopsis

Album Description
Night Train Records proudly presents Swing Time Christmas, a compilation of classic Central Avenue R&B with a holiday theme featuring R&B pioneers Charles Brown, Lowell Fulson, and Big Joe Turner as well as jazz greats in their prime: Jimmy Witherspoon, Lloyd Glenn, Jesse Thomas, Pete Johnson, Johnny Moore, Frankie Ervin, and Cecil Gant. Late forties rhythm, blues, and swing: this is the finest collection of Christmas blues ever assembled, painstakingly restored from the original master tapes. Includes previously un-issued material and alternate takes. Not in the history of black music did so many superstars of a genre (who graced the soundtrack of Denzel Washington's Devil in a Blue Dress) record as many Christmas songs as those of the late forties California blues scene. These soulful tunes from the Swing Time label (1947-1952) bring a touch of classy nostalgia to the Christmas season.
