Description

This electrifying compilation of blues, jazz and R&B will give any holiday party a high-voltage kick. With merry makers like famed band leader Lionel Hampton, bop sax titan Dexter Gordon, the West Coast cool of Johnny Otis, Floyd Dixon, Jesse Thomas & Lloyd Glenn, and hard blues heroes Sonny Boy Williamson II, Lightnin Hopkins and Lowell Fulson, its a kaleidoscopic, soul-satisfying rampage through the Christmas season that also features never-before reissued rarities. With more than 25 tracks spanning Yuletide standards, straight-up gospel, low-down laments and wild boogies, the compilation also re-introduces some minor but marvelous musical voicesCecil Gant, Thelma Cooper, Titus Turner, and the sensational child prodigy Sugar Chile Robinson. Hang up your stockings and hang onto your hats, because this Christmas is gonna jump!
