When the weather outside is frightful, few things sound as delightful as good Christmas jazz music. Classic jazz Christmas songs were made for curling up around a fireplace with loved ones under a soft blanket that matches the smoothness of the singing and saxophones. This list of popular jazz Christmas songs aims to determine which are the best of all time. It includes the best jazz instrumental Christmas songs, from legends like Duke Ellington, as well as classic Christmas standards from the likes of Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, and Bing Crosby. Female jazz singers feature heavily here as well, with Peggy Lee, Nancy Wilson, and the legendary Ella Fitzgerald all belting out sultry holiday classics.
