Description

Violin Jazz on a Winter's Night is a Christmas album of stylish, swinging arrangements for violin and piano. Favourite Christmas carols and songs are given the complete jazz treatment, with rhythm, embellishment, grooves, and solos all carefully notated. The expertise of the arranger, a celebrated jazz musician and composer, guarantees an authentic jazz sound, and a range of styles from Nat King Cole to John Coltrane. While paying homage to American Christmas jazz, the collection also reflects a European tradition, in such time-honoured classics as 'In the bleak mid-winter'.
