O’s Notes: Trumpeter and bandleader Irwin Mayfield leads the New Orleans Playhouse Revue to perform eight Holiday classics in true New Orleans form. It is definitely a differentiated approach, one that places you on Bourbon Street late December. “The Christmas Song”, the trio version of “Christmas Time Is Here” and “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” are among the best of the selections.
