From the movie The Polar Express, "Hot Chocolate" is hot stuff. Based on the original recording, this one has been adapted for the young player by arranger Mike Lewis. No solos, modest ranges and a driving bass line make it move along. Mike offers two endings to make this chart effective all year round: one with the hip "Jingle Bells" quote and one without. This is a fun swinger loaded with energy. Check it out! This title is available through SmartMusic. (2:30).
