Christmas In Jail (Ain't That A Pain) - Christmas Blues & Jazz 1924-1944
Release Date: 20/10/2017
Catalogue No.: CD-CNTRST-1225
Record Label: Contrast Records
Format: CD

This unprecedented two disc anthology of pre-war jazz and blues Christmas music is a fascinating, and highly entertaining, showcase of rarely heard seasonal gems with a roster of talent that includes Kansas City swing titan Count Basie, the infamous Peetie Wheatstraw (usually billed as the Devils Son-in-Law or High Sheriff of Hell), the undisputed Empress of the Blues Bessie Smith, pioneering bluesman Blind Lemon Jefferson, jazz jive genius Fats Waller and downhome folk hero Lead Belly, it rates as a must-hear collection. And theres much, much more: bluesman Leroy Carrs brilliant title track Christmas in Jail, the hyper jaunty highjinks of Jack Teagarden and Johnny, along with swinging gems from Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton and Duke Ellingtons Hot Five, all inarguably qualify this as the seasons finest musical stocking stuffer.
