The New York Latin Jazz Allstars bring an entirely new and fresh concept to traditional Christmas songs. This assembly of Jazz Giants, teamed up with established Contemporary Latin Music Veterans on the New York Scene, burn on arrangements of well known Christmas songs. Dave Valentin played a big role in bringing all of the talent together that you will hear on these tracks. It is also one of the last recordings featuring the late Tito Puente. Produced by jazz great Bob Cranshaw and combined with the arranging skills of Mike Longo, Papo Vasquez, Ricky Gonzales, Ray Santos and Piro Rodriguez, this unique recording will become a treasured addition to your Chistmas music collection in addition to becoming a great jazz recording in it's own right. -Al Trainer.
