Great Christmas Listening: Jazz Pianoscapes on CD

003 (22)

(top:14 nicely arranged tunes played by The Nancy Walker Sextet and the Dwyer Quintet; Reflections Music; bottom: the equally satisfying Beegie Adair album with 12 snappy tunes, Green Hill)

004 (12)

(top: 14 songs, a somewhat minimalist approach to the melodies, but successful approach by Brubeck, Telarc; bottom: boldly arranged band approach to 15 songs by Edmonton’ own jazz great Tommy Banks–Royalty)

*I should also mention Vince Guaraldi’s classic A Charlie Brown Christmas album which works for kids and romantic adults alike; get the 12 evocative songs plus 4 bonus tracks version on Fantasy.
