Cool Chords For Christmas

Basic Jazz Harmonies for Piano

Arranged by Jim Hammerly

Be the first to review this product

Following the format of the popular collection Cool Chords for Church comes Cool Chords for Christmas, arranged by Jim Hammerly. This collection features a cool new twist with fresh arrangements of 12 favorite Christmas carols with traditional harmonizations followed by jazz-style chords. They're great as stand-alone piano solos or may be used as accompaniments for unison singing. Arranged at the medium difficult level, they're not just "last stanza" harmonizations--each re-harmonized version includes several "cool chord" substitutions for traditional harmonies, giving the music a light jazz sound. Play the whole piece, or pick and choose the parts you want. Chord symbols are included for quick and easy analysis so that you can apply the chords in your own improvisation. Cool Chords for Christmas is a great way to put a fresh new perspective on traditional Christmas favorites!
