A Swingin' Christmas presents Bennett's first recording of "Christmas Time is Here," the precious Charlie Brown Christmas gem co-written by Vince Guaraldi and Peanuts producer Lee Mendelson. Arranged comfortably in his range, he wanders through its reverie with a contemplative, almost serene performance that somehow sounds profoundly grateful. The last two tunes, without the Basie Band, seem to more freely allow the genuine, warm brilliance of Bennett's voice to radiate through. He attacks the first verse but floats through the second of "The Christmas Waltz," drawing out the jazz overtones of the quartet's dancing rhythm in both. O Christmas Tree," with only pianist Lee Musiker, smolders with quiet and intimate power, ruminating from the profound darkness of that silent night.
