Quick Overview

Here’s a Christmas collection for piano that is hip and really fun to play. These uniquely jazz-styled arrangements of favorite Christmas songs have been written in a variety of current styles: Swing, Latin, Rock and Ballad. The play-along CD will give the player a chance to “jam” with a fine jazz combo. There are two tracks on the CD for each carol or song, one with alto sax solo and rhythm section (piano, drums & bass) and one without the solo part for play-along purposes. Repertoire offered includes: Angels We Have Heard on High, Deck the Halls, The First Noel, God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen, Go Tell It on the Mountain, Greensleeves (What Child Is This?), Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, Jingle Bells and more.
