We've been looking at various critic's and website's "best jazz of the 2010's" lists, but now the listeners get to weigh in. Their Mike loves him some holiday jazz specials, so in honor of Christ coming to earth, realizing it was a lost cause, and leaving before he even hit forty, we're looking at five Christmas-themed albums and EPs. Three of them appear on Telarc, and Pat has things to say about that. Pop matters is mostly stuck on Harry Nilsson, as we suspect it will be for some time.
