AllMusic Review by

While not a "proper" holiday package, The Cool and the Smooth could provide seasonal relief from "Winter Wonderland" or "The Christmas Song" in December while remaining entertaining all year long. These classic jazz artists are collected on 15 cool tracks based on a loose seasonal theme. Duke Ellington's "Passion Flower," Lee Konitz's "Autumn Nocturne," Sue Raney's "Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams," and Irene Krall's "The Gentle Rain" are highlights from this mid-line Music Club collection.
