Review

For his second seasonal collection, recorded in 1969 (following 1964's The Jack Jones Christmas Album), Jack Jones took a more eclectic, contemporary approach, including spiritual (if not specifically holiday) songs like the socially conscious "Some Children See Him" (which posited a multi-racial Christ child) and the recent Edwin Hawkins Singers hit "Oh Happy Day." "Little Altar Boy" was also given a gospel arrangement, while "O Little Town of Bethlehem" was rendered a cappella with chorus. "Christmas Day" from the recent musical Promises, Promises may have seemed like a standard-in-the-making, though it did not become one. Still, Jones sounds more comfortable on traditional fare like "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and "Silver Bells." [A 2016 CD re-release added two bonus tracks.] ~ William Ruhlmann
