A Christmas Jazz Playlist
46 Tracks | Play Length: 3hrs 02min
Jazz has long been a popular music style when it comes to Christmas music and there’s no shortage of traditional Christmas songs played in a variety of Jazz styles. This playlist aims to capture some of the great Jazz players’ takes on Christmas classics as well as working in a few originals along the way.
You’ll hear one of a kind Christmas tracks by jazz greats like Oscar Peterson and Dexter Gordon, as well as better known songs from Vince Guaraldi (of Peanuts fame) and Dave Brubeck. Whether you’re a jazz fan looking for some classic holiday tunes or just looking for some festive-yet-unobstrusive music for your Christmas party (or Hanukkah, or Solstice), there’s a little something here for everyone.
Hand-Picked Instrumental Jazz Songs
This playlist contains no vocal tracks, making it ideal as mood music for your holiday cocktail parties or family gatherings. It also makes a great playlist for Christmas light tours (if you’re one of those houses that has the lights playing to the radio or a playlist, I’d highly suggest giving this one a whirl). The tempo and mood may change from track to track but overall this playlist brings to life the feelings of the season.
Take a listen and leave your thoughts. Or better yet, suggestions for additional tracks!
