Carrie Wicks (disclaimer alert: my sister-in-law) is poised to release her vocal jazz album on Origin Records, in the shops April 2010. The above is a tempter; a super smoky take on the Rankin/Bass standard. If you are having a cocktail party for Christmas, play this song and watch the martinis sink.
Some live recordings of Carrie from Egan's in Seattle and more info via her meinespace page. Your coffee mug will shake when she hits the lower registers... love it.
