I'm not a real fan of "The Christmas Song", but if it's done by an old school jazz guy, I'll bite. So I did. The damn thing sounds so much like that photo above looks, I had to slap it up here. Listen to it and you'll see. The others are just random findings. You can decide if they're good Gordon or not. I plead ignorance when it comes to his body of work. He's just a another big name on the waiting list. It reminds me of when I owned no jazz at all. I asked the jazz buyer at Tower Records, then the boyfriend of a friend of mine, what Charlie Parker album was the one to start with. He looked at me with a look of conviction, and just said "All of Charlie Parker's stuff is great." It was as if to say, "if you put your foot in the pool, it's gonna be a long swim."
