Tremendous Sound. Make no mistake, this is a BIG band disc. Carmichael's band bursts out all over the place with holiday cheer. His arrangements and bubbly and bright, providing a contemporary big band seasonal offering. The arrangements were originally used with another great big band, that of Stan Kenton's in 1961. This current disc was recorded live at Speer Studios in Nashville in 1997. A real treat for big band fans.

(Total Playing Time 64:14).
