This ambitious set of carols in contrasting jazz styles features "Up On The Housetop (swing)", "Lo, How A Rose E'er Blooming (ballad)", "Patapan (jazz waltz)", and "Ding! Dong! Merrily On High (swing)". Though all the hallmarks of a Niehaus arrangement are present--modern chords, melodies for all, solid ensemble work, etc.--what we like most about this portrait is that it features songs that haven't been done to death.
- Up on the Housetop
- Lo How A Rose E'er Blooming
