          A different interpretation of songs we all know! An enjoyable challenge for a beginner such as myself.

          Good jazz style (eg jazzy improvisation-like sections) and enjoyable backing tracks on the CD. Music looks easier than it actually is due to the fast tempo of some of the carols. Well worth learning and playing up to speed with the accompanying jazz backing group.

          Great book for the player at intermediate level who would like to have a go at sounding like a professional playing with an accompanying band!

          Some songs were a little too difficult for a beginner. Otherwise very good backing tracks.

          absolutely fab a must purchase even for the more novice player which includes me i am busy working through it and i love it some pieces are quite challenging but thats half the fun to work through. I would highly recommend this book for a different perspective to xmas songs

          My son, who has only been playing saxophone for less than 2 months, got straight into this. Some tunes were a little hard for him but others were very playable and he enjoyed it. A great mix of familiar Christmas tunes.

          A nice treatment of some Christmas favourites using simple jazz and swing tempos supported by a good sounding backing track. The key signatures prevent this from being a beginners book but ideal for improvers looking for something a touch more challenging
