The Live from the Landing PBS radio series regularly features trumpeter Jim Cullum's Jazz Band on well-scripted shows. This particular CD finds Cullum and his hot group (with either Brian Oglivie or Allan Vache on clarinet, trombonist Mike Pittsley, pianist John Sheridan, Howard Elkins doubling on banjo and guitar, bassist Don Mopsick and drummer Ed Torres) on excerpts from a few Christmas jazz programs. Among the notable guests are pianist Dick Hyman (heard on "Jingle Bells Swing"), flugelhornist Clark Terry (duetting with Sheridan on "The Christmas Song"), soprano saxophonist Bob Wilber (who jams on a heated "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town" with the full band), bassist Milt Hinton (on "Winter Wonderland"), singer Banu Gibson (on two songs, including a rendition of "White Christmas" notable for including the rarely heard verse) and tap dancer Savion Glover. Fine classic renditions of Christmas jazz.
