Notes and Editorial Reviews

Christmas has long been the most popular and fun Holiday in Western culture. We ALL love listening to Christmas music. But, we are all so tired of the same old songs played over and over and over again. This release solves that issue. What can be more fun, fresh and exciting than hearing our favorites, but with a twist. Christmas Saxophones: SaxMas features some of the finest saxophone players in Kentucky as we turn the season on boring, stale Christmas songs in saxo-fun charts! This energetic release offers you cool jazz arrangements as well as some traditional charts arranged to please the ear and place a Holiday smile on your face. Mark Records is well known for producing fun, original, thought provoking and interesting releases. This Read more ultra-fun Christmas series features this Saxophone release, Christmas Tubas, Christmas Trombones, Christmas Clarinets, and Christmas Brass Ensembles with more instruments to follow.
