AllMusic Review by

Christmas Blues & Shout is a multiple-disc set that features some of the best artists of the '40s and '50s contributing their versions of classic Christmas songs. Jazz masters like Duke Ellington and Louis Prima sit side-by-side on the compilation with early rockers Chuck Berry and Fats Domino. Unlike many Christmas collections, most of the songs included here are quite famous, as are the musicians who play them. Someone looking for a jazzy, up-tempo album for the holidays would probably enjoy this very much.
