Here are a couple of swinging Christmas tunes that put a jazzy spin on the holiday spirit and will have you tapping your foot and humming along in no time. The messages and melodies make these songs instant Christmas classics that you’ll want to hear every year.
These Christmas songs were fun to write but are even more enjoyable to listen to, especially since they are played by great musicians. Melani Skybell, an acclaimed jazz vocalist and pianist, has been performing for years in top jazz venues throughout the country. Her voice on these songs is a real gem that sparkles in her best warm and sensuous style. Adding some tasty spice on guitar is Clint Strong, who is widely regarded as one of the finest jazz guitar players in America and has recorded with musical giants such as Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson and Red Garland. The other very talented veterans include George Anderson on upright bass, Jeff Robbins on tenor sax and Jaelun Washington on drums and their knack for timing and tempo make the whole thing really swing. Thanks also to Paul Osborn at Audio Dallas for engineering and mixing and George Guerin at DES Mastering.
Have a jazzy Christmas.
