This JUNO-nominated album is a delightful mixture of carefully selected chestnuts, obscure gems and new originals. It was released as part of the Sound of Jazz Concert Series and broadcast live by JAZZ.FM 91. Christmas Kiss has been recommended on numerous “Best of” Christmas lists, including those of Frank-John Hadley’s 2017 Yuletide Roundup (DownBeat Magazine). This album is well on its way to becoming a seasonal favourite!

“With a purr as smooth as whipped egg nog, Panton makes Christmas Kiss a sprig of audio mistletoe, backed by the light touch of jazz trio trumpeter Guido Basso, guitarist Reg Schwager and Don Thompson on bass, piano and vibraphone.” – Stephen Cooke, The Chronicle Herald

“Four Stars! […] Diana Panton [is] a sensitive singer with a lovely voice who brings a warm glow to all 15 tracks on Christmas Kiss. She deftly uses gossamer shading and rhythmic subtlety to recondition conservative picks like ‘Winter Wonderland’ and more thoughtfully chosen tunes, such as Ted Shapiro’s 1941 composition ‘Winter Weather’ and John Leslie McFarland’s ‘Kissing by the Mistletoe.’”  – Frank John Hadley, DownBeat
