A Dave Brubeck Christmas is a 1996 album by Dave Brubeck, released in 1996 on Telarc. It is a recording of solo piano pieces which were recorded at Ambient Recording Studio in Stamford, Connecticut on June 6 and 8, 1996. Brubeck also contributed the album's liner notes.
Brubeck's next unaccompanied solo album would be 2000's One Alone.
The album peaked at 3 on the Billboard Top Jazz Albums chart.
In addition to several Christmas classics, Brubeck includes two original compositions, "Run, Run, Run to Bethlehem" and "To Us Is Given." Ken Dryden at Allmusic calls "Joy to the World" and "Winter Wonderland" as "treasures" and states the entire cd is "worth repeated hearings." The album made the top-10 on Billboard's Top Jazz Albums chart, and was listed among the best-selling jazz albums of 1997.Dave Brubeck – piano
