Saxophone Quintet



This ambitious set of carols in contrasting jazz styles features Up On The Housetop (swing), Lo, How A Rose E’er Blooming (ballad), Patapan (jazz waltz), and Ding! Dong! Merrily On High (swing). Though all the hallmarks of a Niehaus arrangement are present–modern chords, melodies for all, solid ensemble work, etc.–what we like most about this portrait is that it features songs that haven’t been done to death.

Contents: Up On The Housetop; Lo How A Rose E’er Blooming; Ding! Dong! Merrily On High

Instrumentation: 2 Altos, 2 Tenors and Baritone Saxes
