POP goes the Holiday!
Here's one that's a bit lighter and more casual than the Heavy-Handed Sound of Organs and Chimes. It's from 1959 on the Rondo-lette label (an even lower budget division of Rondo Records). It's a nice, simple record that makes for good listening by the fireplace on a cold night.
The liner notes refer to this music as: "popular jazz style with a slight beat, with a little feeling of the intimate jazz, but always in good taste." I don't know about you, but I can't stand intimate jazz that's done in bad taste!

He got the recipe from the packaging on a CD by Jaymz Bee & The Royal Jelly Orchestra (1996, Milan Records 7313835820-2) called "A Christmas Cocktail". It's a great record and was sponsored by Smirnoff, who also supplied the included cocktail recipes.
