Although Rosemary Clooney had a major part in the famous film White Christmas back in 1954, this was her first full Christmas album and it was a big seller when it was released late in 1996. From the jazz standpoint, there is not much here, as Clooney is accompanied by a huge orchestra conducted and mostly arranged by Peter Matz. Although there are a few brief solos from altoist Gary Foster, tenor saxophonist Dan Higgins, trombonist Chauncey Welsch and trumpeter Warren Luening, the music is essentially nostalgic middle-of-the-road pop with Clooney joined on several numbers by the Earl Brown Singers (who also take brief a cappella versions of some veteran Christmas tunes); one tune apiece features appearances by Michael Feinstein and Rosemary's brother Nick Clooney. But jazz content aside, Rosemary Clooney is in good voice, and the heartfelt emotions that she expresses on these Yuletide favorites communicate quite well.

Genre: Pop, Rock, Christmas / Label: Bear Family

Christmas is generally regarded as the feast of love, even if Christmas is not always beautiful for everyone. The Rock'n'Roll contemporaries of the 1950s already recognized this when they tried to break out of established family traditions. The songs in this compilation represent both opposites sharply to each other. On the one hand Paul Anka's It's Christmas Everywhere, with all its lights and snowflakes, but Bobbie & Boobie keep it cool with their Cool, Cool Christmas. And in-between Patti Page's Santa Claus dances the boogie woogie and Edd 'Kookie' Byrnes teaches us the Christmas time under the Beatniks!

Genre: Soul, Funk / Label: Kent

15 years on from both Dave Godin's passing and his fourth volume of Deep Soul Treasures, Kent has compiled a further 25 tracks using titles chosen by Dave for future projects in the series. Many are recordings he wanted from day one of the Treasures concept, but licensing quirks made them unavailable until now. The Emotions' Somebody New, Helena Ferguson's Where Is The Party, George Jackson's My Desires Are Getting The Best Of Me and others are tracks he had wanted to include from the outset.

This Japanese collection features mostly early Cliff Richard hits, beginning with his first, "Move It," which was released in 1958, through his so-called comeback years in the late 1970s, including his only U.S. hit, 1976's "Devil Woman." In the years after Elvis Presley but before the Beatles, Cliff Richard was the biggest thing in British rock & roll – and in the years after the Beatles, he was never far from the top of the U.K. charts. Arriving in 1958, just a couple of years after skiffle swept Britain, Richard was the first English singer to approximate the hip-shaking rebellion of American rock & roll with his 1958 debut single "Move It"…

Soft Rock, Pop Rock, AM Pop | A&M Records #CDA3105

Soft rock duo Daryl Dragon and Toni Tennille definitely didn't fit everybody's notions of cool. "Muskrat Love" is a quintessential slice of novelty cheese that could only have scored during the '70s. But it's unfair to judge them by something they didn't write and isn't representative of their career. (However, Dragon's bare-chested poses on the original gatefold sleeve definitely fell into the "what were they thinking?" file.) Otherwise, there aren't any blemishes on this roundup of their first three A&M albums – a commercial coup accorded to few acts so early in their careers. The buoyant "Love Will Keep Us Together" is the natural opener – and set the template for a style centered around Dragon's lush, baroque keyboards and Tennille's breathy, intimate vocals.

Vocal Jazz, Big Band, Vocal Pop, Standarts | Label: Savoy Jazz | # SVY 17607

This 15-track set puts together some amazing performances by Billy Eckstine's band from the early '40s when he was leading one of the more intense, smoking bands on the scene. Some of his players during these years included Fats Navarro, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Dexter Gordon, and Kenny Dorham, just to name a few. The Eckstine band was sophisticated, jumping, and they swung like mad no matter the tune. Here, of course, the emphasis is on Eckstine's vocals, his smooth as silk baritone that could sing a ballad like Duke Ellington's "Sophisticated Lady," or a deep swinging blues by Doc Pomus ("She Got the Blues for Sale"). There's scat, solid jazz balladry, and jumping, tough-hitting blues here. Highly recommended.

Genre: Soul, Jazz / Label: Uni/Motown

The Supremes, like most of Motown's impressive roster of artists, were essentially geared and groomed to produce great singles, and thanks to the brilliant Holland-Dozier-Holland songwriting team, that's exactly what the Supremes did between 1961 and 1969. A dozen of the group's singles hit number one on the pop charts, an amazing achievement, and with songs like "Come See About Me," "Back in My Arms Again," "My World Is Empty Without You," and "You Can't Hurry Love," to name just a few, it's easy to hear why. This 18-track collection boils everything down to the essential singles, and for most listeners, it'll be all they will ever need.
