- Pianist Bill Evans having some vocal fun with “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” (as well as the backstory on how the song came to be written)
- Guitarist Emily Remler‘s luminous version of “Snowfall”
- Horace Silver and singer Andy Bey doing Silver’s “Peace”
- Poet Sascha Feinstein reading his poem about the legendary Miles Davis-Thelonious Monk Christmas Eve 1954 recording session.
