Playing tracks by

Booker t. & the mg's, Lionel Hampton featuring Sonny Parker, Carla Bley, Louis Prima, Eartha Kitt and more.

It seems so righteous to kickoff the Holiday season with a mix called Kickass Christmas. This is one fun set of tunes!

Carla Bley's really gets you grinning with her spare rendition of "Jingle Bells". Pearl Bailey follows with a cha-cha-cha version that widens that grin into a face full of smile.

Are you sick and tired of hearing Jose Feliciano sing "Feliz Navidad"? Michel Camilo pounds out one amazing antidote. Later, Fats Domino puts a toe-tapping twist to that old standard, "Frosty the Snowman".

Things mellow toward the end of the set. Carmen McRae's soulful "The Christmas Song" has some nice sax in it. Duke Ellington's sexy "Sugar Rum Cherry" showcases the full, rich sound of an incredible big band. Finally, Ramsey Lewis and Lou Rawls put the rhythm back into rhythm and blues.

This cloudcast is dedicated to Danny. He delighted in making The Fourth full of fun and fireworks. But Christmas was his favorite holiday and he outdid himself each and every year.
