Kenny G: The Greatest Holiday Classics

The man everyone loves to hate–or love. This greatest hits collection (he’s already done three Christmas albums, people) features 12 songs from Christmases past and four new tunes for this year. He’s not going to give Coltrane a run for his money on “My Favorite Things,” and Bing Crosby’s seminal “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” won’t be displaced. As if the demographic needed to be any wider, Mr. Gorelick tosses in “The Chanukah Song” for good measure. If it’s smooth-jazz Christmas hits you want, here you go. There are, however, other options.
