Advent Calendar Day 20 – Charles Brown ‘Merry Christmas, Baby’

This mellow jazz track really stands in contrast to most of the other classic Christmas tracks. The sax is slow and grooves over the tinkling piano. Every now and again  there’s the stab of a guitar but it’s hugged on either side by the laid back instrumentals, so much so that when the guitar steps up for its solo it effortlessly noodles around. Charles Brown’s caramel vocals gels this cultured Christmas classic.
