With elegant simplicity, Deke Sharon's arrangement of the Irving Berlin classic "White Christmas" gives each voice its moment to shine. The minimal homophony keeps the pleasurable chord changes coming, culminating with a satisfying cadenza progression that will close your holiday concert with class. Looking for something to spice up your Christmas program? How about the Elvis classic "Santa Claus Is Back In Town"? With plenty of swagger and swing, the tenor solo sits over a bed of playful doo-woppy harmonies. "got no sliegh with reindeer, got no sack on my back, you're gonna see me comin' in a big black Cadillac! Finally a setting of the Charlie Brown Christmas classic "Christmas Time Is Here" that doesn't require a children's choir! The sweetly sentimental Tenor 1 melody floats over and dips into a woven texture of rich jazz harmonies. Originally made famous by Kay Starr, this arrangement transforms "(Everybody's Waitin' for) The Man With The Bag" into a playful barbershop swing, with the melody in the tenor 2 line, and lots of right homophony.
