Would you like to spend a couple of very merry Sundays being entertained by an eight-piece musical group - free of charge? Jazz Spectrum is similar to Manhattan Transfer in that both have a vocal quartet and a jazz group backing them. Jazz Spectrum will be putting on two Christmas concerts, one concert on December 8 at the Warren Newport library – 224 N. Oplaine Rd. in Gurnee, Illinois from 2:30 – 4PM and another concert at the Rolling Meadows library – 3110 Martin Ln. 2- 3PM In Rolling Meadows, Illinois, December 15.

The concerts will feature mostly Christmas songs and some novelty songs. All arrangements are by Jazz Spectrum’s leader, Bob Zaun.
You can check out Jazz Spectrum’s Christmas album on jazz spectrum/ It’s Christmas.
Two of the songs on the album, The title song, ‘It’s Christmas’ and ‘Sleigh Bells Ringing Merry Christmas’ were composed by this writer, Larry Boisen, a member of ASCAP

Here are the lyrics to, ‘Sleigh Bells Ringing Merry Christmas’:© 2003 Larry Boisen

Hear the horses nay, as they pull our sleigh
Briskly through the falling snow
See the beam of light from the moon tonight
Cast it magic spell below

Our hearts are filled with joy and laughter
Christmas time in now at hand
Hi – ho, away we go
Through the wintry wonderland

Hear those sleigh bells ring, jing, jing, jingaling
Ringing through the frosty night
Snow flakes in the air, decorate our hair
We are cozy snuggled tight

We don’t need a glowing fireplace
Stars are blazing in the sky
Hear the clipity clop, tassel flippity flop
Sleigh bells ring Merry Christmas!

Be sure to listen to this song and the title song, ‘It’s Christmas’ on CDbaby!

There is always a large turn-out for these concerts, so be sure to arrive there early.
