Do you have any Christmas albums you enjoy a lot but few others seem to have heard of? Maybe we can point one another to some good holiday recordings we haven't heard before. First one I'll mention is John Pizzarelli's Let's Share Christmas. There are some nice big band arrangements mixed in with smaller jazz trio (a la Nat Cole Trio) recordings that work well together to make a really nice little Xmas CD. Another holiday favorite of mine is the A&M sampler album, Something Festive, available only on vinyl. It features two tracks each by Alpert & TJB and Baja Marimba Band, and one each by Brasil '66, Liza Minnelli, We Five, Pete Jolly, Claudine Longet and Burt Bacharach. It's not difficult to find either--I came across four (or is it five) copies rather easily.
