Jazz with George Thomas on VPR with Christmas Jazz & Best of 2011 for Thursday, 12/22/11 

We wallow in Christmas Jazz tonight, playing many "snow" songs in an attempt to influence Mother Nature to cover us in the traditional White Christmas covering. Louis Armstrong and Kermit Ruffins cover Christmas in New Orleans and the pianos of Ralph Sutton, Dave McKenna and George Shearing stride into the holiday.
