Every misgiving that is thrown at Christmas music would surely evaporate by the time this smooth collection of soul jazz recordings has work its magic. If ever a compendium of tunes could get the music purists on side and into the Christmas spirit (finally) then these lounge lizards would surely be it. Always a step above elevator music these soul jazz Christmas songs have class on their side, a continual sense of the free spirit and a penchant for doing things differently. So while there are plenty flashes of recognisable Christmas songs there are dressed up in such elaborate sonic musings they forever feel like masterful new recordings. The slinky musicianship is there for all to marvel at and while none of these tracks will likely turn the party into a raucous affair they will nonetheless offer a warm ambience befitting the season. And if you take anything from this playlist make sure it is ‘Christmas With McGriff’.
