AllMusic Review by

Tenor-saxophonist Houston Person's Christmas album finds him jamming both newer songs ("Santa Baby," "Our First Christmas" and "A Christmas Love Song") and a few old classics (including "Jingle Bells" and "God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman"). His warm tenor is featured with three different groups including a trio co-starring pianist Mike Renzi, a quintet with guitarist Randy Johnston and a different quintet that has a vocal apiece from Etta Jones, Della Griffin and Melvin Sparks. This well-rounded holiday album even sounds good in July.
