In their annual holiday concert series, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy sets the Christmas season in full swing with a set of big-band carols and spirited jazz standards. Bandleader Scotty Morris grips the mike like a Christmas ornament that just won’t stay still while leading his old-fashioned ensemble in an eggnog-smooth cover of “Blue Christmas” and a hip-swiveling cha-cha version of “Jingle Bells.” In a rare moment of nearly sober reverence, the band’s instrumental “We Three Kings” strikes a slower, more solemn note. Other, less familiar gems might include Louis Armstrong’s “Zat You Santa Claus?” and “Mr. Heatmiser,” a snappy duet from the 1972 claymation classic The Year Without a Santa Claus. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy performs “Rockabilly Xmas” on Last Call with Carson Daly in 2004
