On the lighter side: Holiday jazz as performed by Automation World

Print Reprint
Listen to the sounds of some holiday jazz, performed by musicians at your favorite automation magazine and Web site!

This year digital media director Dave Newcorn pressed his jazz band into service to perform some old chestnuts (including the actual Chestnuts song), many with a modern twist. The Who Needs Dave Jazz Ensemble moved into Dave's living room for two days in early December 2012, recording the tunes below. To fully enjoy this music, please listen through headphones, ear buds, or on a pair of halfway decent speakers. See if you can guess what this first tune is!

Baby, it's Cold Outside
Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting)
O Christmas Tree
Auld Lang Syne
Silent Night
