Kitten For Christmas
Phew. Ok. From here on out, 'til the end of the year, every post here will be a very special post (you, know like an ABC After School Special, or a very special episode of Blossom...egad, I'm dating myself). Super duper Holiday posts through Christmas Eve, and the day after Christmas we're gonna start presenting the 20 or so albums that made our Top 10 Albums of the Year. Everybody's doing it, dontcha know.
Since we had us some hillbilly lovin' yesterday, we're gonna load you up with a little jumpinjivinharmonizinhepcatjazzbluesgospelswing-type Yuletide finger poppin' today.
The following tunes were brought to you in high(ahem) spirits courtesy of Bob Chester, Dexter Gordon, Eddie C. Campbell, Louis Prima, Paul James, and Rev. J.M. Gates.
And don't forget to fill your Holiday liquor cabinet over at Barstool Mountain when you've finished here.
Bob Chester: Here Comes The Fattest Man In Town (mp3)
Dexter Gordon: Jingle Jangle Jump (mp3)
Eddie C. Campbell: Santa's Messin' With The Kid (mp3)
Louis Prima: What Will Santa Say (When He Finds Everybody Swingin') (mp3)
Paul James: Crazy Little Kitten For Christmas (mp3)
Rev. J.M. Gates: Will Hell Be Your Santa Claus (mp3)
Ah, hell, it's the Holidays. Give a little something at your local food pantry. Seriously, sometimes a warm meal or a blanket can be the greatest gift.
