  • September 05, 2014 Great Music!

    This is a great book to use during the Christmas holidays! I've loved Craig's music for years, and wouldn't miss buying any of his advanced piano books. I love the variety in his books --from salsa to swing to blues and others. The arrangements are challenging but...

    very entertaining for listeners. He's been a solid & interesting arranger for me to depend on for sure.

  • September 01, 2014 A favorite!

    This is one of my favorite Christmas jazz books. The jazz trio I am a member of uses several of these fantastic and fun arrangements. Mr. Curry very creatively employs different jazz styles and rhythms, and everything has a great flow to it. I own several of Mr. Curry's...

    books, and while some of his arrangements can be a bit above my skill level, I found this book to be very accessible with just a little practice.

  • September 01, 2014 Fun!

    As a piano teacher and a church pianist, I'm always on the look out for new material. Often in a Craig Curry book, I'll "fall in love" with one piece especially. In this book, it was "Sing We Now of Christmas." So...much...fun! I played it last...

    season with a bass player and a drummer (love that those parts are included on the CD inside) and it was a hit! I look forward to exploring more of this book soon in the coming Christmas season!

  • May 29, 2014 A Jazz-Inspired Christmas

    Some selections have good creative ideas but they are not developed fully. Many measures repeat and repeat, loosing the momentum in the music. Simple chords are used through-out, with a heavy use of the Right Hand. Most selections are religious melodies but not of quality to be used in...

    a Church Service. I was disappointed and expected more.

  • November 17, 2011 Jazz up your Christmas!

    Craig Curry has done an excellent job with the arrangements in this book. If you liked his Gospel Improv book, you'll love this one! From a blues arrangement of Silent Night to Gospel Swing arrangement of The First Noel, there are many styles of jazz included. Enjoy!
