AllMusic Review by

Smooth Grooves: A Sensual Christmas offers a vintage soul spin on the season's favorite songs. The album features a dozen tracks from 1969-1975 from some of the era's finest R&B artists, and includes the Jackson 5's "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," Isaac Hayes' "The Mistletoe and Me," the Emotions' "Black Christmas," the Ohio Players' "Happy Holidays," and the Impressions' "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus." Gladys Knight & the Pips' "Silent Night" closes Smooth Grooves: A Sensual Christmas on a fittingly soulful and reverent note.
