Even jazz musicians do Christmas tunes

I have posted before about some of my favourite Christmas songs, from the sublime to the ridiculous. As well as the classics, my seasonal playlist includes some jazz be-bop tunes that might not be on your radar, so here are three of my favourites in case you feel like expanding your Christmas playlist. Enjoy!

Firstly Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong doing ‘Jingle Bells’:

 

 

Secondly, Bill Evans playing ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’:

 

 

And lastly, Charlie Parker playing ‘White Christmas’:
