On request of the regular attenders we have this Month a free thread for Christmas songs, without fixed host or tune proposal. As long as it's played by or with a member (in the past or freshly recorded) and has something to do with Christmas it's valid to post into this thread!

Backings and scores can be found on YouTube or other sites or sources, or can be supplied by our members if they have something to share.

Looking forward to an active thread. :)

This thread is also added to the B&I TOTM index thread:

Here is an old video from my Big Band recorded during a gig on a cold outdoors stage in December 2015 (tuning is an issue playing outside around zero Celsius!). The first tune is 'Frosty The Snowman', followed by some 'real' Big Band music ('Sing Sing Sing' at 2:45, with a short solo from me around 3:48).

Great sounding clips from all you jazzers! Mr Peebee - loved the big band video - haven't sat in the sax line of a big band in way too long....sure miss the fun of being surrounded by all that music! Congrats to all on your renditions so far. It's not too early to think about New Years.....so here is my take on the beautiful song "What are You Doing New Year's Eve?".... I sure love this song and fell in love with this arrangement. Hope you like it as much as I enjoyed putting this recording together.

Believe it or not, I was using a very cheap curved soprano that I bought on Ebay for $100....wish I still had that thing.... sadly I sold it off a while back. Happy Holidays to you all and keep the wonderful spirits sounding!

Here's the opening from our BigBand Xmas concert. I recorded this only with my phone that I put on my musicstand, my Zoom decided to quit and kept on booting over and over. So it's not all well balanced sounding between the sections now on this recording, but it is to give you all an idea on our take on Angels we have heard on high. I was a few seconds late hitting the Red button and I left the blablabla from the speaker in.
