Oxford University Press. Billboard on Twitter. Retrieved December 31, These Are the Blues Hello, Dolly! Louis Blues. One person found this helpful. Great Christmas album from a great artist. Beautiful sounding and looking record. I could live without Good Morning Blues, but this is, without a doubt, the best of the lot. Nothing comes close to Ella's offerings she recorded another, more carol oriented album too. Buy this.

Ella Fitzgerald might be considered as the gold standard of jazz singing.
She was and is in a class all her own. Holiday recordings are released by the bushel basketful every year, and this year is no exception. The same two dozen songs, secular and religious, joyous and somber, are created and recreated in the spirit of jazz, some good and some better.
Many perfectly fine recordings have been prepared for this season and may be researched at All About Jazz. They all serve a purpose and appeal to different subsets of listeners. In an art form as far flung as jazz, it is hard to find holiday recordings that will appeal to all. For this season, it is a something year-old recording that takes the prize as most accessible. Enough of the historical stuff, this is one smart Christmas recording. It swings hard and is perfectly digestible by anyone.
The listener can sing along with Ella should they want to and almost sound as hip as she does.
