Album Notes
Christmas Holiday music from Hackdaddy! Traditional carols and original songs in a variety of styles from swing to salsa, from jazz to techno. There's plenty of Hackdaddy style throughout, on both trumpet and vocals!

Deck the Halls: An energetic latin feel in 5/4 time showcases the Hackdaddy trumpet in a unique arrangement of this well known carol.

Silent Night: This version of Silent Night is a little bit Stan Kenton, a little bit Mannheim Steamroller, but all Hackdaddy. It actually began as a brass quintet piece back in the early '90s, was rewritten and expanded to include rhythm section a few years ago, and was re-recorded, remixed and remastered in 2013.

Christmas Towns: Big band style original song with lyrics by Ron "Wordsmyth" Carmona and music by Mike "Hackdaddy" Hackbert. Hackdaddy sings!

O Come, All Ye Faithful: Funky, jazzy treatment of the traditional Christmas carol.

Nosotros Tres Reyes: Christmas does the Salsa! Snappy instrumental of a favorite traditional carol!

Christmas in the Country: Original Christmas ballad with lyrics by John "Booger" MacDonald and music by Mike "Hackdaddy" Hackbert.

What Child Is This: The Hackdaddy horn swings in this cool jazz adaptation of the English folk song Greensleeves, the basis of the carol What Child Is This.

Blues for a Silent Night: The well known Christmas carol reworked in an introspective blues style with just organ, bass and muted trumpet.

Little Drummer Boy: Two interesting facts about the arrangement of this song: 1-There's no trumpet! 2-It's not jazz! The result is a very techno-style, somewhat Mannheim Steamroller-ish treatment with, of course, the drums being very prominent.

Go, Tell It on the Mountain: The overall format of the arrangement of this traditional gospel holiday favorite has been around for a while, first performed by trumpet and piano a number of years ago. It has also been a duet for synth guitars, and a couple of different vocal/choral editions. For this album, a male vocal ensemble is featured with piano and bass accompaniment.
