Ah Satchmo. I’ve you’ve never watched a concert performance by Louis Armstrong you don’t know what you’re missing. Not only is he one of the greatest musicians the jazz movement has ever seen, his playful stage antics make him one of the most endearing figures in music.

  1. ‘Zat you, Santa Claus?
    Taken from the album Christmas Through the Years

    Gifts I’m preparin’
    For some Christmas sharin’
    But I pause because
    Hangin’ my stockin’
    I can hear a knockin’
    ‘Zat you, Santa Claus

    Sure is dark out
    Not the slighest spark out
    Pardon my clackin’ jaws
    Uh, who there
    Who is it
    Uh, stoppin’ for a visit
    ‘Zat you, Santa Claus

    Are you bringin’ a present for me
    Something pleasantly pleasant for me
    That’s what I’ve been waitin’ for
    Would you mind slippin’ it under the door

    Four winds are howlin’
    Or maybe that be growlin’
    My legs feel like straws
    Oh my, my, me, my
    Kindly would you reply
    ‘Zat you, Santa Claus
    Yeah

    Oh hangin’ my stockin’
    I can hear a knockin’
    ‘Zat you, Santa Claus

    Yeah, say now
    Hey there, who is it
    Stoppin’ for a visit
    ‘Zat you, Santa Claus

    Whoa there Santa you gave me a scare
    Now stop teasin’ ’cause I know you’re there
    We don’t believe in no goblins today
    But I can’t explain why I’m shakin’ this way

    Well I see old Santa in the keyhole
    I’ll give to the cause
    One peek and I’ll try there
    Uh-oh there’s an eye there
    ‘Zat you, Santa Claus

    Please, please
    I pity my knees
    Say that’s you Santa Claus
    That’s him alright
