"What a Wonderful Christmas" by Louis Armstrong and Friends
Emma: "Zat You Santa Claus?" is a track on this album. And sounds like Louis Armstrong does The Nightmare Before Christmas. It's great. And representative of the flavour of this whole album. Sense of fun mixed with actual incredible musical ability(ies). At last.
Charlie: If nothing else, this album has introduced a new Christmas meme to our holiday season— Armstrong's inimitable (though of course we try) "'zat you, Santy Claus?". His voice is (obvs) great, lots of good hot band playing, although it's ultimately not super Christmassy-sounding. Probably more worth putting on the whole album as a change of pace in a day of listening, rather than mixing it in the giant shuffle playlist. Fun AND musical— recommended.
