Our playlist containing nothing but the sound of a smooth jazz Christmas may be small but it is still perfectly formed. Such is its unhurried charm that you may find yourself curled up and toasty beside the open fire with only the whistle of the cold wind outside to detract from your dedicated aim to chill out over the holidays. And could any collection of smooth jazz Christmas music be complete without the saxophone impresario Kenny G? Probably not as the Christmas album million seller (many times over) has carved out quite a niche for himself in the instrumental end of the Christmas music market. His take on 'My Favourite Things' is among his best known festive covers with the magic truly kicking in when he takes to his favourite form of brass instrument. Smooth jazz Christmas songs work best when they rework old classics such as 'The Christmas Song' and 'White Christmas'. Filling these familiar standards with plenty of brassy and percussive nuances is enough to jazz up any yuletide experience.
