Description

2021 reissue - This is one of the better Christmas themed jazz albums and as such deserves wider recognition. Pearson's arrangements are creative and Arto Moreira's percussion work keeps things jingling and jangling for that festive touch. Sleigh Ride, the jaunty opener, has been featured in compilations and is thus the best know track. It's a pretty relaxed piece where Pearson and Moreira trade licks based around the central theme. It's followed by a thorough and at times almost avant-garde deconstruction of The Little Drummer Boy. Other highlights include the seldom covered Wassail Song and a very brief but moving rendition of Little Town of Bethlehem.
