Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!  Just wanted to take a moment to highlight some of my favorite Christmas Albums.  One of which, I literally heard for the first time last night! 

David Grisman's Acoustic Christmas is really a great album!  Including Mike Marshall, Darol Anger and other great musicians, this is definitely worth listening to!  My favorite part is when David goes head to head with Donald Duck on "We Wish You a Merry Christmas".  Great stuff!

Another great album is Django Bells.  If you like swing that is.  Django Reinhardt is one of the greatest swingsters of all time!  Check out his stuff on Christmas Swing

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
