We sincerely hope everyone had a great holiday in the past couple of days filled with great times and wonderful people. To keep the merry spirits up, we’ve got a version of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” produced and arranged by Marcus Miller for performance by Joshua Redman on saxophone, Lalah Hathaway on vocals and Poogie Bell on drums. Miller’s manager, Bibi Green, explains, “It was released in 1996 on Blue Note Records ‘World Christmas’ benefitting the Special Olympics.”
Special kudos to Green for putting this up for our listening pleasure as well as putting together the slideshow. Look out next week for our continuing previews of Winter Jazz Festival 2013!
