A Holly Jolly Christmas – Inspired by the version my Mercy Me, custom arranged for vocal solo, back vocals, full big band – 5444 (plus optional bass sax) and parts for two percussionists.
This has a honky-tonk up tempo “second line” kind of groove. This is a great party song and could be use with kids, or think, “Western (cowboy) Line Dance”. Note that all the instrumental break solos are written out. This is a fresh take on a true Christmas Classic. Listen to the audio midi track of this arrangement (note that the track is a bit slower than the original) and check out the sample score. Also check out the original version that this arrangement is inspired by.
