Ships from and sold by reflexcdgb. So with that I will say this is a really great album. It's Christmas with a nice jazzy edge and some great solos by the band. I am not a great fan of Holiday tunes, but even tunes I normally don't care for on this album get me going a bit! Let's Start with Jingle Bells. While the Basie Band had an arrangement of this back in the 1950's, this arrangement is updated and fresh and fits the current band well.

A Swingin' Christmas is a Christmas album by Tony Bennett, released in 2008, that features the Count Basie Big Band. Bennett's daughter Antonia duets with him on one track. The album received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album at the 52nd Grammy Awards. To promote the release of the album Bennett granted numerous interviews, and made a number of television show performances, from the time of its release through the holiday season.

The Count Basie Orchestra’s brash sound remains synonymous with Kansas City 31 years after William Count Basie’s death. Currently under the direction of trumpeter Scotty Barnhart, the band’s historical importance and lofty reputation allow it to maintain a large payroll and meet the artistic challenge of playing a form of mainstream jazz that hasn’t been at the forefront of popular culture for decades. The anachronistic tone doesn’t spoil A Very Swingin’ Basie Christmas! partly because holiday albums aren’t appropriate forums for innovation. That unnecessary exclamation point in the album’s title and the characterization of the 11th track on the 44-minute album as an encore feel like signs of desperation, but the band shouldn’t feel compelled to resort to cheap gimmicks. In spite of its faults, A Very Swingin’ Basie Christmas! is an entirely worthy addition to the ensemble’s illustrious discography.

Album · 2015 · 11 Songs. Pianist Ellis Marsalis' crisp but understated style on "Let It Snow" and "I'll Be Home for Christmas" evokes the great Basie's own fingerwork; Johnny Mathis brings a playful spirit to his vocal turn on "It's the Holiday Season"; and Ledisi opts for a warm tone and delicate vibrato on "The Christmas Song. The whole band sounds potent, balancing brassy exuberance with relaxed, season’s-greetings swing. A Very Swingin’ Basie Christmas! The Count Basie Orchestra.
