Don’t be a fuddy duddy! Boogie woogie your way through the holidaze with this joyous collection from the boogie-woogie madman, Jimmy Maddox. They’re all here. Every fun Christmas song you can think of done in toe'-tapping boogie woogie tempo.
After opening with the title cut and his own composition, “Boogie Woogie Christmas Card,” Jimmy makes the other selections his own territory, as well. “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” and he’s coming in style, baby, ready to party with his pals. Chuck Berry’s “Run Rudolph Run” segues nicely into a hilarious rendition of Louis Armstrong’s “Zat You Santa Claus?” The perennial “Jingle Bells” keeps you rocking until songstress Claudia Nygaard makes a surprise visit on “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.” Watch it, Santa.
Could you use a little Cajun seasoning this season? “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Little Drummer Boy” serve up a Creole Christmas fit for a king, of the Mardi Gras that is. The R&B classic “Boogie Woogie Santa Claus” reminds us of why we love this stuff. Because it rocks, that’s why! And, let’s not forget the reason for the season. There’s good news, people, “Go Tell It On The Mountain.”
All in all, it’s boogie woogie done right and not a slow sad song in the bunch. Just a man, a mic and a piano doing boogie woogie the way God intended it. Listen to this and you’ll be boogying around the Christmas tree this year. I guarantee it.
