The Best Christmas Jazz Guitar Songs

Jazz up your Christmas with some of these great jazz guitar Christmas songs. We’ve got classics like “Jingle Bells” and “Silent Night” as well as some more modern takes on holiday favorites.

Jingle Bells

‘Jingle Bells’ is one of the best-known and commonly sung American Christmas songs in the world. It was written by James Lord Pierpont and published under the title “One Horse Open Sleigh” in the autumn of 1857.

Although it is not a particularly religious song, it has been included in many Christmas collections and performances. It is unknown who exactly commissioned Pierpont to write the song, although it is believed that he was inspired by the sleigh races that were held in Medford, Massachusetts during the 19th century.

The original lyrics of ‘Jingle Bells’ were written from the perspective of a young man recounting a sleigh ride that took place on a snowy day. The opening verse is as follows:

“Dashing through the snow / In a one-horse open sleigh / O’er the fields we go / Laughing all the way / Bella’ll find it hard to choose / Only once they’re both in view / Oh, what fun it is to ride and sing / A sleighing song tonight!”

The song has since been adapted for numerous other purposes, including as a Christmas carol, a Christmas guitar solo, and even as background music for Santa Claus making his rounds on Christmas Eve.

Silent Night

“Silent Night” (German: Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht) is a popular Christmas carol, composed in 1818 by Franz Xaver Gruber to lyrics by Joseph Mohr in the small town of Oberndorf bei Salzburg, Austria. The song has been recorded by a large number of singers across many music genres. The version sung by Bing Crosby is the third best-selling single of all-time.

The song was first performed on Christmas Eve 1818 at St Nicholas Church in Oberndorf, a village in the Austrian Empire on the Salzach river in present-day Austria. A young priest, Father Joseph Mohr, had come to Oberndorf the year before. He had written the lyrics of “Stille Nacht” in 1816 at Mariapfarr, the hometown of his father in the Salzburg Lungau region, where Joseph had worked as assistant priest. The melody was composed by Franz Xaver Gruber, schoolteacher and organist in the nearby village of Arnsdorf.

White Christmas

“White Christmas” is a 1942 Irving Berlin song reminiscing about an old-fashioned Christmas setting. Originally written for the 1942 movie Holiday Inn, the song was a last-minute addition to the film, as Berlin initially believed the holiday movie format would be unable to support a song.
