Orchestrated by renowned music arranger Daniel Kelley, HollyWind ‘n Wood has become more popular each year since it was recorded. Evoking Christmases of the past with woodwinds, strings and French horns, Kelley’s sophisticated arrangements from this CD are so astoundingly first-rate they are currently used as orchestration teaching tools at the Juilliard School of Music.
The title track, It’s Christmas Time Again, is sung by one of the legends of the great American songbook, John Pagano. Also on the CD are Carol of the Bells, I Saw Three Ships, Pat-a-Pan, Mel Torme’s The Christmas Song, The Holly and the Ivy, the upbeat Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Away in a Manger, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, I’ll Be Home for Christmas, We Three Kings of Orient Are, O Come, O Come, Immanuel, Bring Your Torch, Jeannette, Isabella and the forever buoyant It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas.
