Wishes You A Swinging Christmas
Released: Jan 1960
Label: VERVE MASTER EDITION
This one lives up to its title, with the purest set of pipes in holiday history covering Christmas classics backed by Frank DeVol's hot big band charts. It's all pure gold, but the highlights include the wisely chosen "Good Morning Blues," which contains so much saucy swagger that Ella turns a frown upside down, and "The Secret of Christmas," a drop-dead gorgeous ballad.
