A Waltz for Christmas
« on: December 11, 2019, 02:38:59 PM »
In 1954, Frank Sinatra recorded The Christmas Waltz as the "B" of his single White Christmas.  Written by composer Jule Styne with lyrics by Sammy Cahn,  the song quickly rose to become a perennial favorite Christmas standard in the US.  A huge host of crooners from that year to the present have covered the tune   I trust that some of you will enjoy my humble instrumental cover here.  Merry Christmas Everyone !!!

Very nice work Richard! Love the passing tones and lyrical melody lines! You used a great chordal backing and wonderful leads for this lovely melody! Thanks so much and happy holidays!

Hi Richard

A lovely melody, a song not so popular as others but should be and you played it beautifully
