Cara de Silva sent us this fab video as a gift after watching our Ode to Joy post. It’s the great Django Reinhardt performing “Christmas Swing” (December 1937, Paris) set to footage from “The Night Before Christmas,” a television special from the 1950’s, sponsored by the Bell Telephone Company, PA., featuring the Mabel Beaton Marionettes. Dig that swingin’ Santa!
Is THIS what’s goin’ on while we sleep tonight?
One thought on “the swingin’ night before xmas”
That’s just awesome. Thank you so much for posting —
