Jam of the Day – Those Holiday J-I-N-G-L-E Bells

This is probably the most upbeat and jazzy version of “Jingle Bells” out there, from good Ol’ Blue Eyes. Throw it on while you decorate a tree and watch the Christmas dance party materialize before your eyes.

Jam of the Day – ‘Tis the Season

It snuck up on me this year but the holiday season is here upon us. To celebrate, over the next week we will be posting some of our very favorite jams of the season. So grab some warm cider, unwrap your candy canes, light up the tree and enjoy!

Although not the original Sinatra version of the song which is, of course, my favorite, this Chris Martin cover is excellent.

Jam of the Day – Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Well friends, we’re heading off soon for various Christmas activities (much love to the other tribes/non-believers/etc. – we just happen to love Christmas jams!). Make no mistake – EV2BK hopes that you have yourselves some merry celebrations and good cheer this holiday season!

“But what about my present?” you might ask. We couldn’t agree on which version to post, so it looks like it’s got to be a CHRISTMAS BONUS DOUBLE JAM, with two versions of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” The first jam is from John Denver and The Muppets, where Rowlf the dog(g) really belts it out with a gritty yet emotionally evocative sound that contrasts nicely with John Denver’s smooth stylings. The second take is the more classic (and arguably better), with Frank Sinatra holding it down solo on the track. Watch out for the tear-inducing tendency of this song; there’s a reason why your grandmother loves this record.
