The Larry Berkovitz, Zak Barrett & Friends annual live Christmas Jazz programme features around eight staples of the absolute best of the Christmas Jazz songbook and a further dozen or so hand-picked numbers (which are rotated each year) to complete the set.
Their previous album release, 2017’s “On A Roll….”, featured 14 great tracks recorded live during their 2016 Christmas season, but didn’t include any of the actual Christmas Jazz pieces themselves. This new album, “In Your Stocking”, in contrast, is built around a core of classic Christmas Jazz pieces together with some of the great fun numbers that really enhance the seasonal spirit – and the antics taking place on the stage!.
The songs are about love, family, homestead, being happy together, beautiful scenery and life without a care in the world with more than a hint of snow, ice and reindeers too! It’s all a lot of fun and makes for a light-hearted season’s cheer. Larry and the boys hopes are that in a small way, their music will add to your holiday season
As the cover says – Fillin’ your Christmas with jazz
