Anton, 2004, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Swing
O’s Notes: Five Christmas classics including “Jingle Bells”, “Sleigh Ride” and a reggae version of “Winter Wonderland” are arranged in a warm jazzy mode. Leader Anton Schwartz (ts) carries the melodies supported by Art Hirahara (p), John Wiitala (b) and Tim Bulkey (d). There is ample improvisation and good spirits that will make a great foundation for relaxing.
