AllMusic Review by

This is a three-CD set of Christmas favorites, featuring a different group on each disc. The songs are played in a contemporary jazz setting ranging from smooth jazz on the first disc to slightly more mainstream jazz on the third. There are no real surprises as far as song selection goes; each is a well-known holiday favorite, and these versions are perfect for setting a holiday mood. The only surprise is the presence of sax player Mel Collins, who has appeared with an incredible array of musicians, from King Crimson to the Rolling Stones, although his playing here is a good bit more restrained.
