Reviews For Wishes You a Swinging Christmas
Jazz Journal - Sally Evans-Darby
Lyrics are improvised with Ella's trademark joie de vivre, and the sound throughout is bouncing, frothy and sweet without becoming overly so. ****
Jazz Journal - Sally Evans-Darby
She's backed throughout by a series of first-class orchestras whose cymbal-crashing and bell-jingling whips up just the right amount of feverish fun. ****
