Brian Setzer Christmas Songs & Music

It's hard to imagine a more enjoyable way to deliver some holiday joy than with a collection of swinging jazz carols. When Brian Setzer and his orchestra took up the challenge of Christmas music, they produced some hugely fun collections sure to get any party started. Setzer's holiday music proved so popular that a compilation album entitled Christmas Comes Alive was released in 2010, featuring favourite hits from the previous yuletide albums.

Brian Setzer Christmas Albums

Boogie Woogie Christmas

2002: Boogie Woogie Christmas

The Big Band sound of the Brian Setzer Orchestra conjures up images of lavish old- fashioned Christmas parties, complete with egg nog, snowflakes and plenty of dancing. Traditional favourites like Jingle Bells and Sleigh Ride provide tonnes of swinging fun, while Setzer’s luscious O Holy Night manages to be just as uplifting. The orchestra’s jazz sound is ideal for classics like Blue Christmas and Baby It’s Cold Outside. There’s even a fabulous swing version of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite; the standout track of a Christmas album sure to raise the roof at your next Christmas gathering.

Dig That Crazy Christmas

2005: Dig That Crazy Christmas

Brian Setzer follows up his first Christmas album with a great collection of both old and new holiday songs. Classics like My Favourite Things and White Christmas sound fabulous in big band style while Jingle Bell Rock and You’re a Mean One Mr Grinch sound as though they were made for Setzer and his gang. The traditional Angels We Have Heard on High is given a modern twist while retaining the moving brass fanfare element of more classical renditions. Setzer includes some fun originals in the mix as well, like Dig That Crazy Santa Claus and Santa Drives a Hot Rod.
