Various ‎Verve // Remixed Christmas

Hello Everyone Last Post Of The Year - Thanks For All Your Comments & I Wish You All A Happy Christmas & A Happy New Year
Back On January 10th 

Get It At Discogs
Verve Records had several producers and DJs remix a set of classic holiday songs from the label's impressive back catalog and the result was the album called Verve Remixed Christmas, and this set serves as a companion to that volume, containing the untouched mixes of the songs in their original versions. Remixed or no, there are some pleasant treats here, including Jimmy Smith's funky big-band soul-jazz approach to "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," Nina Simone's stunningly intimate phrasing on "I Am Blessed," and Louis Armstrong's classic "What a Wonderful World" (is this really a Christmas song? No matter, it's great.) One could argue that none of these sides really needed to be remixed, and the proof of that is certainly here, but listening to this set in conjunction with the remixed versions is a lot of fun, and quite fascinating at points

Such a fun album! This version of "What Are You Doing New Years Eve?" is a Holiday necessity!
Happy Holidays Aid00!
