AllMusic Review by

A cross-section of top musicians who have recorded for Music Masters are heard on these 14 Christmas-related songs, including Vincent Herring, Jim Hall, Loren Schoenberg, Marvin Stamm, Dave Brubeck ("We Three Kings"), Stanley Turrentine, Kenny Davern (jamming "Jingle Bells" in a duet with Howard Alden), the Vanguard Jazz Sextet, Benny Carter (playing "A Child Is Born" while backed by Hank Jones), Jack Wilkins, Eastern Rebellion, Dick Hyman (a solo "White Christmas"), Rebecca Parris and Louie Bellson. A joyous, swinging collection of Christmas jazz.
