Herb Alpert turned to jazz’s Shorty Rogers — then toiling in the L.A. film and TV studios — for voice and string arrangements on his Christmas album, and Rogers in turn went all out for schmaltz. Rogers’ cooing voices introduce several of the tunes, whereupon the Tijuana Brass do their mostly unrelated Ameriachi thing familiar from past albums. Indeed, “Las Mananitas” seems to have been lifted from an obscure B-side of a 45 and overdubbed with the Rogers treatment. Jingling bells is a recurring song theme — first with “Jingle Bells,” then the cloying “The Bell That Couldn’t Jingle,” and ultimately “Jingle Bell Rock.”Read More

Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas is a charming, warmly humorous — and yes, swinging — set of classic Christmas tunes. The program is familiar, from bouncy singalongs like “Jingle Bells” to slinky ballads like a downright sexy “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” but Fitzgerald treats each song with exactly as much respect as it deserves.

Popular songs are often associated with the vocalists that made them famous but few artists actually have the distinction of having a “theme” song along the lines of Bob Hope with “Thanks for the Memories.” Even fewer can claim to have two theme songs attached to them and Andy Williams is one of those fortunate stars. After “Moon River” became forever linked to Williams, he recorded a holiday song for his first Christmas album that gave him a yuletide hit and theme song.Read More

After three consecutive Top Five Pop albums in 1970 alone, it was somewhat of a no-brainer that Motown would want to include a holiday long-player to that list. The Jackson 5’s Christmas Album (1970) combines classic favorites as well as a handful of compositions penned by the Corporation.Read More

Christmas albums are usually done to appease recording artists who have had some success; they rarely sell well because the holiday season is short, but some disprove the stereotype and sell seemingly forever — like this one. The Supremes put their warm harmonies on 12 classic Christmas songs, everything from “White Christmas” to a rousing “Joy to the World.” Diana Ross’ angelic, sweet, innocent voice is a perfect match for favorites like “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town.”Read More

When it comes to Christmas, there are two camps. There are those who find it commercial and hollow, and those who are bewitched by the season’s traditions, music, and unique magic. 1 fall decidedly in the latter category. lt’s long been an ambition of mine to record a Christmas CD, and when I approached Günter Pauler with the idea last year, he was more than enthusiastic.Read More
