    Silent Night from the album Jazz Christmas. A very mellow vibe, with a soulful string arrangement. A pure blend of dark and light that manages to capture the spirit and essence of christmas..Listen to a sample here:

    And lo a wise man of retail did appear in their midst. And his name was Ama of Zon. Bearing gifts aplenty, Ama of Zon promised eternal joy, and a lifetime of spam and cookies, asking only for credit card details and customer loyalty in return. And soon the flock forgot why they had gathered in the first place. Verily twas the beginning of the end. Nice plug dude. Subtle..

    An AAJ member asked where this stuff can be heard/ordered. I'd provided a few links, nothing more, nothing less (and not all links).

    I've no personal interest in amazon. I could have chosen cduniverse or any other online vendor. I make no money from amazon - am not even an affiliate partner.

    My all time favorites are Kurt Elling's "Cool Yule", Bob Dorough's "Blue Xmas", and Benny Green's "Zat You Santa Claus".
