    Notes: From the Beantown Swing Orchestra 2011 holiday album A Beantown Christmas, what starts as a traditional-sounding orchestral jazz arrangement of the Christmas classic warps into a Duke Ellington style R&B swinger.

Several trumpet mutes are needed, and the opening saxes include flute and clarinet doubles - FFCCA. Vocal range is Bb2 to F4

    Notes: The Louis Prima classic mash-up is brought to life for full big band in this roaring tribute that the Beantown Swing Orchestra often closes their shows with. The full vocal performance is built in here, including room for wild band call and response near the end. Several solo spaces are provided, but watch out for the high notes in the trombone, they can be a killer! There is room for Keely Smith styled vocal harmonies as well. This one makes a fantastic rowdy closer to your show, but no matter where you put it, it's always a crowd-pleaser! Vocal range is Eb3 to Eb4.
