Three well known Christmas songs done in a new way. Collection includes Jingle Bells– switches from ¾ to 4/4 and back again with a “La Cucaracha” base line, Silent Night– done as a Jazz waltz, and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen– with a very interesting counter melody and modulation. These tunes will bring smiles to the faces of your listeners as well as the players.
