This EP is a nice addition for your Christmas playlists. It follows in the footsteps of Evans and Guaraldi, whose influence looms large on these tracks. The vocalists skewed a bit poppy for me, and to me it sounded like they clashed with the intimate, jazz combo arrangements. I’ll put this on for a Christmas dinner party or something to have on in the background, but that’s about all that’s going to happen between this album and me. It’s well done and sounds good, but I just had a hard time engaging and getting into it.
