Americans have integrated Christmas into all their artistic expressions, especially cinema and music. Many Christmas songs have become authentic classics. "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" is a good example. A song introduced by Judy Garland in the 1944 film "Meet Me in St. Louis". The theme has been later performed by a lot of artists (Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, James Taylor, Carpenters, Bing Crosby, Michael Bublé, Diana Krall, etc.). I give you two versions: Judy Garland's original and a cover by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and the special collaboration of Cécile McLorin Salvant.
