The Rob Parton Big Band just released their Christmas CD: Christmas Time is Here.
This Chicago-based Big Band, which has been around for over twenty years, is at the top of their game. He's got a raft of great soloists and arrangers in the band, including Tom Garling, Tom Matta, Mark Colby, and other stalwarts of the Chicago scene.
And, as luck would have it, three of the arrangements on the CD are mine: Silent Night, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, and Christmas Time is Here — the title track, which I arranged specifically for this album.
The album is out on iTunes, and the CD can be ordered directly from Rob on his website: MORE INFO
