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!

  • December 08, 2008 Great Jazz for Christmas!

    This collection is very cool! The rhythm section accompaniments are professional, very similar in style to the Vince Guaraldi Trio's sound. You can use the written improvisations, or make your own. The funky arrangement of "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" is a blast - I use it to end...

    all of my holiday gigs!
