Houston Person & Etta Jones
Together at Christmas

Perhaps more Christmas trees have been decorated to the music of Houston Person and Etta Jones than any other jazz record. Their previous record (no longer available) was one of the all-time favorite seasonal jazz records. This time out, they bring more of the same insight, humor, wit and sentiment to a selection of holiday favorites. Houston and Etta know how to take material that, in lesser hands, may seem trite and inconsequential and expose hidden meaning and imbue it with a sincerity that is hard to match. Expand the holiday paraphernalia list to include eggnog, mistletoe and Houston Person & Etta Jones. The holidays will be that much brighter.
