The Paul Keller Ensemble wishes you a Merry Christmas with their new CD Christmas Songs for Jazz Lovers.

This inspirational and uplifting CD celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ through jazz. Christmas Songs For Jazz Lovers makes a perfect Christmas gift! Christmas Songs For Jazz Lovers swings like crazy and can be enjoyed not only at Yuletide, but throughout the year.

Christmas Songs For Jazz Lovers contains performances of 12 familiar Christmas melodies cleverly arranged by Keller and his bandmates for trumpet, trombone, saxophone, piano, bass and drums.

Highlights of Christmas Songs For Jazz Lovers include Keller's 7/4 treatment of We Wish You a Very Merry Christmas, pianist Ellen Rowe's stunning arrangement of Silent Night, trumpeter Paul Finkbeiner's D minor "modal-basher" We Three Kings and trombonist Chris Smith's nifty version of Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy inspired by Pitor Tchaikovsky, Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn. Special guest, multi-percussionist Cary Kocher adds a bit of holiday cheer to the festivities with orchestra chimes, sleigh bells, triangle and glockenspiel.
