This collection features 6 traditional Christmas carols that have been completely transformed into a variety of exciting jazz/blues/swing pieces by Eric Baumgartner. It is not essential for the performer to have previous jazz experience, and no sections require improvisation. However, even experienced “jazzers” and professional musicians will find this collection accessible and very playable. The pieces are excellent additions to any repertoire. Comes complete with CD orchestrations by Eric Baumgartner. Highly recommended! Songlist: Deck the Hall • God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen • O Christmas Tree • The Coventry Carol • Good King Wenceslas • Jingle Bells.

    The book has a variety of titles written in contrasting styles. The melody is not always apparent due to being "jazzed up" so I would recommend this book for more advanced players (i.e. Grade 9 of Canadian RCM or Grade 7 or British Trinity). The CD's orchestral sound...

    is quite fake and electronic but each song is recorded twice -- first with the sound of piano playing along, and second as just orchestra, which is nice to allow pianist to feel like the soloist amongst the orchestra.
