O’s Notes: RJ Kelley (horn), Ann Ellsworth (horn), Michael Seltzer (tb), David Taylor (tb), Wayne du Main (t) and Lewis Soloff (t) are collectively Manhattan Brass. Holiday started as a few charts arranged by Carla Bley on tour with Lew Soloff several years ago. Enter arranger Jack Walrath with five more selection and the concept became reality. The band is as dynamic as ever and the arrangements are indeed unique. The overall sound is somewhere between Celtic and New Orleans, owing to the instrumentation. It is not your ordinary Christmas CD.
