ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The group Prelude formed in 1978 by trumpeter Dave Detwiler, has performed at literally thousands of weddings, parties, barmitzvahs, retirements, conventions, and concerts, all over the Washington, D.C. area and surrounding suburbs. Known for years for their quality music, no matter what the occasion, this extraordinary group has now recorded a truly unique collection of Christmas melodies arranged in a variety of jazz forms by several of today's genius writer-arrangers. Christmastime in Washington blends superb musicianship with great charts and has a little something for everybody. From the straight ahead jazz arrangements on Frosty The Snowman, Sleighride, and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, to the easy listening jazz style of I'll Be Home For Christmas, Christmastime Is Here and In The Bleak Midwinter, the fresh approach and creative improvization will entertain the novice and jazz expert alike. The Brass choir opening to Away In A Manger, and the totally New Orleans approach to Jingle Bells as well as three great vocal tunes and a Funky Little Drummer Boy should make this a seasonal favorite for many years.

This is NOT just another Christmas CD...
The world is full of Christmas CD's already and this CD rises to the top of the pile. Even though you've heard these tunes many times before you will be, in many ways, hearing them for the first time. Big kudos to the brilliant arrangers whose contributions here are only equaled by this groups impecable musicianship.
Serious music listeners will be very satisfied by this offering and listeners who want a twist on the usual christmas tunes will be pleased as well. Buy it.

Outstanding - sorry I didn't get it before the holidays
One of the best! But, what else would you expect from this group. Recommend you get it now. Hope we see more recordings from Dave and the group soon.
