“God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” b/w “Little Drummer Boy”

Celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with this “Christmas Tree” from the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis! This limited-edition Christmas tree-shaped picture disc is a collector’s item—and the perfect gift for the jazz lover in your life.
The release features two songs from the JLCO’s annual holiday performances: a hard-swinging “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and a laid-back, grooving take on “Little Drummer Boy.” Big Band Holidays is a hugely popular, annually sold-out affair, and this collectible release is a perfect example of what makes the shows so special.
