AllMusic Review by

A wacky reissue of Mele Kalikimaka, Arthur Lyman's Polynesian spin on the whole lounge-y, cocktail Christmas concept, this album features clever, vibraphone-filled versions of your favorite holiday classics. Much like Esquivel's Merry Christmas From the Space-Age Bachelor Pad, Lyman's unusual approach makes With a Christmas Vibe a whole lot of fun, and the liner notes include an eye-opening essay on Hawaiian Christmas traditions.
