Tracks include "Five Pound Box Of Money" by Pearl Bailey, "Be Bop Santa Claus" by Babs Gonzalez, "Christmas Spirit" by Julia Lee, "Hello Mr New Year" by The Coolbreezers, "Zat You, Santa Claus" by Louis Armstrong, "Blue Xmas" by Miles Davis & Bob Dorough, "Boogie Woogie Santa Claus" by Mabel Scott, "Jingle Bells" by Leo Watson, "Santa Baby" by Eartha Kitt, and "Santa Done Got Hip" by The Marquees. 18 tracks in all!

✨✧ Herbie HancockVSOP ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Though there are a number of different LPs using the VSOP title in a few different ways, this was the first, a double album recorded live at the Newport Jazz Festival, featuring Herbie leading groups that represented a number of different points in his career. The first lineup later recorded under the name VSOP, and was a re-grouping of the classic Miles quintet, with Freddie Hubbard in Miles' place, in fine form here, the group playing nice expansive lines as they stretch out. They take on "Maiden Voyage" and "Nefertiti" and really stretch out on "Eye Of The Hurricane". Sides 3 and 4 are the real treat, with Herbie's early electric band that had recorded the spacey Warner's LPs playing "Toys" and "You'll Know When You Get There", and then the funk band that was contemporanious with the release of the LP, featuring Headhunters Paul Jackson & Bennie Maupin, and some heavy wah wah funk from Wah Wah Watson, on "Hang Up Your Hang Ups" & "Spider".
