What Would Santa Say?
This is an amazing Christmas album. I first heard it on East Side (87.9) radio in maybe 2002, when these three old jazz lovers were having their Christmas party. The tracks are hilariously good fun. In Mark Shane's liner notes, he puts the atmosphere they create down to recording around 3 days out from Christmas- apparently this is very unusual for Christmas albums; the musos usually have to do all their work completely out of the season, when no one is really in a Christmas spirit. I'm writing this review after buying the downloads, but I haven't heard the album in years. Will report back!
