I wanted a more swinging version of this old chestnut and decided that I could offer it both as a Duet and a Trio. The duet was completed as a standalone duet, then I added the third part so no matter if you have two players or three, this hangs together equally well.

If you need a little more spice at your Christmas concert this year, you’ll get it with this one.
