Have Yourself a Jazzy Little Christmas
Terrific arrangements spotlight each song. Styles range from blues to swing, to great vocal duets and special surprises. Roster includes Mike Strickland on piano; Clipper Anderson on bass, vocals; Mark Ivester on drums, Jay Thomas on trumpet, Dallas Smith on flute, and Jon Goforth on alto sax. Terry Lauber lends a wonderful guest vocal to Mike and Paul Jarvis’ composition, Yuletide Dance. And special guest vocalist, Greta Matassa sounds just wonderful! “With Ella’s lift and a natural sense of swing…Greta Matassa is undeniably one of the most talented vocalists in jazz today.” (Seattle Times)
This version of Deck the Halls was used in the feature film, ‘Obsessed’ starring Beyonce’. You will love this recording – we hope it makes your Christmas very merry!
“After listening to it for the first time, I felt extremely delighted, but now after repeated playings, it has captivated me to the point were I know I will listen to it for years to come. I own over 500 Christmas CD’s and this easily makes the Top 10 which I can tell you is REALLY saying something. That puts this CD right up there with Classic Christmas CD’s by Barbra Streisand, Manhatten Transfer, Mel Torme, The Carpenters, Maureen McGovern…well, you the idea. I think you can say that this CD is in very good company.” –Scott Nelson (Christmas music connesuir)
