AllMusic Review by

Smooth Jazz Christmas features a variety of smooth jazz artists performing holiday songs. Featured artists include Spyro Gyra ("Feliz Navidad"), Etta James ("Please Come Home for Christmas"), Jeffrey Osborne ("This Christmas"), and Tom Scott ("Gift of Your Love"), along with six others. This is a rather adventurous holiday collection, featuring somewhat obscure songs like "This Christmas" and self-penned songs like Chieli Minucci's "Magic." Furthermore, the artists take liberties when performing the songs, exploring the possibilities of the jazz idiom. Smooth Jazz Christmas should please anyone who can appreciate the more sedate and refined side of jazz.
