Christmas Jazz Play-Alongs to Make Your Spirits Bright Friday, December 09, 2011
The selection of Christmas jazz play-alongs is better than ever!Â They make great gifts for the instrumental â€˜jazz head' in your family, are a fun approach to Christmas songs for people who play for recreation, and work really well for Christmas jazz gigs and social events this time of year.
Two new Christmas play-alongs are available. A Jazzy Christmas is the third Christmas volume from jazz play-along originator, Jamey Aebersold. It features many popular Christmas songs including Frosty the Snowman, Here Comes Santa Claus, Over the River and Through the Woods, Snowfall, and more. The other, from Hal Leonard, is the Big Christmas Collection featuring 2 play-along CDs and 16 popular titles including Baby It's Cold Outside, Holly Jolly Christmas, It's Beginning to Look Like Christmas, Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree, and more.
Other fantastic options include Jazz Holiday Classics and Christmas Carol Classics from Jamey Aebersold, and A Charlie Brown Christmas, Christmas Jazz, and Yuletide Jazz from Hal Leonard. Ideal for the jazz gig and loaded with lead sheets for 150 Christmas tunes is the Real Christmas Book. Published in the format and style of the original Real Books, the Real Christmas Book is now available in transposed editions for Bb, Eb, and Bass Clef, and 3 volumes of play-along CDs are also available separately.
