        Fantastic arrangements. Just hard enough to be a challenge but not so hard I can't play them at all!
        A bit short on content; could have been say 15 pieces making it excellent value.

        Playable, but still jazz!
        I haven't learnt the touch for playing jazz!

        Fantastic arrangements and a good selection of songs. The CD makes it a lot easier to learn if you're not that good at sight reading.

        Similar to Jazz on. A Summer's Day this compilation is largely enjoyable to play, around Grade Five to Six standard and with interesting harmonies to some well known carols. After you have played one or two, the harmonies tend to sound somewhat the same. The arrangements are well laid out and easy to read. A pleasant compilation.

        One of my friends has this book and I love it so much I had to buy myself a copy too. I am not a jazz player but find these arrangements very approachable.

        Most of the pieces are very nicely arranged. however, they are not as difficult as it makes out on the description. Overall a good buy.

        As a fan of Nikki Iles' work in the ABRSM Jazz Piano syllabus, I bought this with high expectations and it doesn't disappoint. A well thought out and varied collection, some arrangements of well known carols, others less well known but equally enjoyable. I'd grade the pieces at grade 3 to 6. Highly recommended.

        The material is good fun (generally about Grade 4 to 5). It's a shame that the chords being used are not marked and that players are not shown the chords on which to improvise (as is the standard ABRSM approach in its course).

        This is a cracking collection of the best in Christmas music, all jazzed up by an expert. The harmonies are heart-breaking and the arrangements are superb.
