A Christmas collection that is really hip and fun to play, Swing Into Christmas has been tailored to provide a unique opportunity for the instrumentalist exploring jazz to join with a first-rate jazz combo. The rhythm section was recorded live and is a great motivation for student practice time. The musicians involved (Richard Iacona - Piano, Andy Fusco - Alto Saxophone, Madeline Kole - Bass and Scott Neuman - Drums) are all experience d, well-known professionals. The CD contains two versions of each song. One includes a performance of the melody (on alto saxophone) with the combo and the other consists of the rhythm section by itself. Designed with the younger, less experienced player in mind, Swing Into Christmas will encourage the jazz novice to learn how to improvise by playing around the melody; examples of this technique are included in the repeat section of each selection. Styles vary from standard swing to Latin Rock and ballad st yle. Selections include:
