"An ensemble that plays with a palpable joy, solid tone and intonation and fine style...The program overall is an excellent representation of Christmas music for trombones, containing a pleasant mix of sacred and secular tunes. It is particularly nice to hear the Tommy Pederson Christmas quintet arrangements put down on disc. They are a staple of any trombonists' holiday repertoire, being fun to play and hear...From beginning to end this CD is a joy to listen to, and must have been a joy to record with such fine musicians."
