Best wishes to you, your families and friends from the Jazz Notes staff as we hunker down for this Christmas 2020. We're looking forward to the New Year as we prepare to had into a brighter 2021.
A toast to you all as we share some vintage musical cheer from among our holiday favorites. Raise your glass, whatever your favorite libation!
While Louis Armstrong's "Zat You, Santa Claus?" and Ella Fitzgerald's saucy take on "Santa Claus Got Stuck in my Chimney" are at the top of our vintage holiday music list, the season is never complete without the delightful animated video of The Drifters’ doo-wopping their way through “White Christmas” with feeling. It features Bill Pinckney on lead bass and Clyde McPhatter on tenor.
This animated cartoon by Joshua Held is excellent - and quite special.
