Dr. Bobby Rodriguez is a superb, high-energy trumpet player as well as a dynamic and charismatic leader, gifted composer and skilled arranger and on "Santa Claus is Coming to Town," he enhances the standard Christmas repertoire with his unique breed of Jazz/LatinJazz. Playing with the fiery passion which distinguishes all of his work, Rodriguez and his 23 piece orchestra present this Christmas song featuring Barbara Morrison in a hot rhythmic setting.
While completely fresh, "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" will find a permanent home next to Nat King Cole's, The Christmas Song and Johnny Mathis,' Merry Christmas. Like these classic recordings, "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" will help us all build many fond Christmas memories in years to come.
Dr. Bobby says it best, "It's time for happy thoughts and a time to remind your family that you love them. It's a time to give." For future generations, Rodriguez leaves this message, "Go with your heart, it never lies."
We are fortunate that Dr. Bobby Rodriguez followed his own heart, resulting in the creation of this recording. It is a powerful gift from him to us.
Enjoy "Santa Claus is Coming to Town." Feliz Navidad!
