Jay Wolfe, Wolfe Guitars, Junpiter, Florida said the following:
Let me begin by stating that I'm a fan of Bob Shaw's and have been for many years. I not only enjoy and appreciate his skills and depth of knowledge on Guitar, but I also enjoy Bob's uplifing outlook on life, faith, family, friends and all things that are generally considered "non-musical." This effort from Bob is a prime example of Bob's taste, style and obvious affinity for Christmas music. He has assembled a fine group of talented players for this effort.

When December rolls around and it's time for me to cue up the seasonal music, I always look for something Jazzy in the mix. I'm not seeking "Jacuzzi Jazz" or "elevator music." Oh contrare mon frere. I want to recognize those all familiar melodies, but it's gotta swing. On this CD my friend trims that tree beautifully. I'm in the Swingin' Christmas Spirit.

From the attention grabbing Winter Wonderland to the cool rendition of "Santa Clause is Coming to Town," which recalls Barney Kessel. Bob's arrangements of these tunes is thoughtful and in keeping with his excellent taste. His solo rendering of my favorite Christmas song "What Child is This" is now my favorite version.

Add this album to your Christmas mix. Like me, you'll have a Jolly old Swingin' time. Thanks Bob and friends for sharing your Symphony with the rest of us this and every Christmas to come.

Ed Benson, Just Jazz Guitar, said the following:

Bob Shaw is well known in the Atlanta area as being able to do solo gigs, work a Broadway show at the Fox or in any other setting where a top pro is needed.

The one thing that comes across in his playing is taste. He doesn't look to impress the listener with how many notes he can play. The melody is the key. He has surrounded himself with top flight players on this 13 cut set.

If you are expecting elevator music, forget it. Bob swings on Winter Wonderland and does one of the prettiest versions of the classic "Christmas Song" I've heard as well as a bluesy take on "Santa Clause is Coming to Town." Another favorite of mine is "Felice Navidad," the Jose Feliciano hit, done in a moderate latin tempo. Well worth adding to your CD collection. Fine, playing and arrangements. Pick it up. You won't be disappointed.
