Music's 5 stars but Capitol wrecked the audio...
Merry Christmas! CD music Some of my all-time favorite brass ANY time of the year! BUT why did they put this beautifully recorded music through that horrible digital process that leaves a kind of shimmering, key jingling effect?

Great Value & Music for the Christmas Season!
Merry Christmas! songs At this price you can't loose. Great Stan Kenton with the Melephoniums. These are instuments that sound a bit like french horns but louder.

A Seasonal Classic
Merry Christmas! album for sale This album is a textbook example of how Christmas music can be arranged and performed in unique ways. The Carmichael & Kenton arrangements have maintained their reverence towards this time of year while demonstrating that Stan Kenton was very much ahead of his time.
