Since I was a kid, I have been a Big Band Music fan. Whether Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington or The Tonight Show Band, I have always loved the sound of big brass, great rhythms and arrangements of Big Band Music. Great performers like Doc Severinsen, Buddy Rich and today's Wynton Marsalis have provided incredible music for generations since the 1930's. It's music that makes you want to dance or romantically hold your better half and move to the occasional slow tune.
So today you will hear the great Tonight Show Orchestra With Doc Severinsen, the Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra With Wynton Marsalis and, for good measure though not Big Band, the one and only Dave Brubeck Trio. His kids play bass and drums.
SO JUST SIT BACK AND ENJOY NO. 6 ON THE 2017 CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN - DOC SEVERINSEN/JINGLE BELLS, 'WYNTON MARSALIS/ZAT YOU SANTA CLAUS & DAVE BRUBECK/SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN' TO TOWN.
Man, the Countdown is getting close to the Big Day. Merry Christmas!
