2002: Boogie Woogie Christmas
The Big Band sound of the Brian Setzer Orchestra conjures up images of lavish old- fashioned Christmas parties, complete with egg nog, snowflakes and plenty of dancing. Traditional favourites like Jingle Bells and Sleigh Ride provide tonnes of swinging fun, while Setzer’s luscious O Holy Night manages to be just as uplifting. The orchestra’s jazz sound is ideal for classics like Blue Christmas and Baby It’s Cold Outside. There’s even a fabulous swing version of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite; the standout track of a Christmas album sure to raise the roof at your next Christmas gathering.
