The first time I heard Diana Krall, I became an instant fan. And when I heard her live, I became a lifelong fan. In the grand tradition of earlier jazz greats, Krall's interpretations of jazz classics will make you appreciate music that crosses generations with ease. And when you listen to her new music which willingly goes where no woman has gone before - Well, you get the picture. Great piano licks combined with a rich contralto voice of an accomplished chanteuse insures that all of her music is worth a listen.
Today you will hear Krall perform Jingle Bells with The Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas . And just to show I haven't forgotten about one of the truly greats of jazz you can check out Harry Connick Jr. performing It Must Have Been Ol' Santa Claus.
Enjoy today's tunes on NO. 8 OF THE 2017 CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN - DIANA KRALL PERFORMING JINGLE BELLS & HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS and HARRY CONNICK JR. PERFORMING IT MUST HAVE BEEN OL' SANTA CLAUS.
One week folks. I can't help it, it's impossible not to feel good at Christmas time. Merry Merry Christmas.
