O’s Notes: Bradley places his flute amidst a dozen Holiday classics. To differentiate him from the abundance of Christmas music the arrangements are all tilted towards Latin and Brazilian jazz though there are a few pop jazz numbers such as his arrangement of “Angels We Have Heard On High”. We enjoyed the calypso beats of “Winter Wonderland” and “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”. The mood is light and the approach works well for a change of pace.
