Neo-swing fans looking for the real thing might opt for Yule B' Swingin', 14 chestnuts as sure to delight as your Daddy-O. Timeless questions are offered by Louis Prima on the raucous "What Will Santa Claus Say When He Finds Everybody Swinging?" and Nancy Wilson's seductive "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?"
Holiday cheer also comes by way of Louis Armstrong's brassy "Cool Yule," Ella Fitzgerald's subtly shaded "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and Dean Martin's too-cool "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm." The stocking also is filled with Glenn Miller's "Jingle Bells," Les Brown's "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" and Peggy Lee's "Ring Those Christmas Bells." Who needs revivalists?
