    This is one of my favorite Christmas books. The jazz sounds are very pleasing, mixed with some pretty delicate sounds as well.

  • December 26, 2011 Too Jazzy!

    I don't know why I keep ordering Popular Performer titles when I've been dissatisfied with every one that I've ordered. And again, it has happened with this one. I purchased it based on the sample that I could see on this website and when I received it...

    , I found it far too jazzy for my taste. I won't be buying Popular Performer books again.

  • December 18, 2007 My favoite Christmas piano book!

    These arrangements are so fun to play. Sound like lush lounge music. The funnest is "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town". The last page and a half has high energy that makes me want to laugh with glee. The songs have good variety between calm sections and more energetic section...

    . Would make nice teacher solos for recitals. Everyone would love them!

  • November 06, 2007 I love this style

    It's rare that I enjoy 80% of any book I purchase but these arrangements were clever and fun. Some were over the top lengthy but it's loaded with great harmonies and rhythms. I love to see more from this arranger (Jan Sanborn).
