Also consider:

  1. “The Christmas Album” – Manhattan Transfer
  2. “Jazz Piano Christmas” – The Beegie Adair Trio
  3. “Holiday for Swing!” – Seth MacFarlane

 

or any of the Sinatra collections :)

Happy holidays!

 

PS - I guess I'm the other end of the spectrum from the earlier poster - I currently have 530 Christmas albums :)

To me the Vince Guaraldi Peanuts album is the undisputed #1

 

Not top 5, but one that I come back to a lot...

Apologies for the late reply - it's been a busy holiday season!

 

I actually like the Lincoln Center Album - especially the Gregory Porter numbers.

Thanks for the info on the Very Swinging Basie Christmas -

sounds outstanding.
