Jingle Bell Jazz

This album was originally issued in 1962 (with different artwork) and then reissued in 1973 (with the art pictured above). My cassette comes from 1980, so it got another reissue later. Eventually it was combined with a second jazz Christmas album and it was released on CD. Unfortunately, on the CD version some important songs were cut.

This is a dub of the original running order.

Jingle Bell Jazz

A1Duke Ellington - Jingle Bells
A2Lionel Hampton - White Christmas
A3Chico Hamilton - Winter Wonderland
A4Carmen McRae - The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)
A5Pony Poindexter - Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer
A6Paul Horn - We Three Kings of Orient Are
B1Dave Brubeck Quartet - Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town
B2Lambert, Hendricks & Ross - Deck Us All With Boston Charlie
B3Herbie Hancock - Deck the Halls
B4The Manhattan Jazz All Stars - If I Were a Bell
B5Marlowe Morris - Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree
B6Miles Davis - Blue XMas (To Whom It May Concern)

Thank you so much for this dub. I loved this version and do not have the technology to copy the cassette myself.

Almost crying here.... I had this cassette in college, 25 years ago. I've since purchased the "Jingle Bell Swing" CD, which admittedly has some unique and wonderful cuts of its own (Art Carney scat-reciting "'Twas The Night Before Christmas" !)... but I've searched for YEARS for Lionel Hampton's "White Christmas" and The Manhattan Jazz All-Stars "If I Were A Bell."

Thank you... God Bless... Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Glad you enjoyed it!

(and now I've got to find that Art Carney piece...)

Thanks for digging that up.

That was, er, not quite as good as I had hoped that it would be.

Adding another thank you! I grew up listening to this tape and was disappointed that the CD version wasn't quite the same.

Happy holidays and a happy New Year!
