Includes CD Play-Along with "Live" Rhythm Section Swing into Christmas provides a unique opportunity for the instrumentalist exploring jazz to "join" with a first-rate combo. The CD contains two versions of each song: a performance of the melody (on alto saxophone or violin) with combo and the other tracks with rhythm section only. Designed with the younger player in mind, Swing into Christmas encourages Jazz novices to improvise. Songs include: Angels We Have Heard On High; Deck the Halls; The First Noel; Go Tell It on the Mountain; Jolly Old St. Nicholas and much more!

    If you want different arrangements of popular Christmas songs, this is for you. I love playing the arrangements and with the play along CD, you can add your own improv to the songs. The songs have a great "jazz" feel to them. Great book, I highly recommend it for students...

    and older people like me, who still play just for fun.
