Christmas In July 2018-Day 48

OK, I just got home from a show that I got to shoot (Cottondale Swamp opening for The Kentucky Headhunters) and I'm still a little pumped with adrenaline.  The Kentucky Headhunters actually segued into Joy To The World for a little bit at one point, and it was awesome! I'm wondering if they recorded that somewhere sometime?  But that's all beside the point.  I'm still up, so I'll share some more Christmas music with you.  No banter though, just a list.  You can add your own banter in the comments.

1. There's A Song In The Air-The Ringing Bells
2. Chinese Dance by Philharmonic Symphony Of London
3. Moonlight In Vermont by Shirley Hannum
4. Trio-Sonata In B Flat by The Choir Of The Church Of St. Mary
5. That Man Over There by Edmundo Ros
6. Waltz Of The Flowers by Bill Dalton
7. White Christmas by Gordon Jenkins
8. Satin Doll (Closing Theme) by The Saints And Sinners
9. Silver Bells by Roy Clark (Actually, not the Silver Bells you're thinking of, unless you're thinking of the wrong one...)
10. Sleigh Ride by Al Bollington.

Ten the quick way.  Enjoy!

i never knew the play “here’s love” or its music. so the merrill staton voices singing “that man over there is santa claus” was a first for me. imagine my surprise when the second rendition i hear comes from edmundo ros! not a cha-cha, but pretty close. i think i just received a musical poke in the ribs. eh? nudge, nudge. wink, wink.

I'm trying to remember if I have ever heard the Gordon Jenkins version of White Christmas. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

I feel sure that Meredith Willson, being a good Iowa boy, did not intend That Man Over There to be played as a cha-cha.

Buster, the Gordon Jenkins is from that Academy Award Winners LP that you shared many years ago. I think he also performed a version of it years before that I have somewhere on 78. There's also a version of Baby It's Cold Outside coming up.

Barba-There'll be no poking at this blog!

Ah yes, forgetfulness has set in!
