Every year we host the family Christmas party at my house, and every year it befalls me (among other things) to come up with the music...enough to keep people entertained for five or six hours. And I have to say, after years of listening to them over and over and over...I'm sick and tired of Mannheim Steamroller and Trans-Siberian Orchestra! They worked for many years, but repetition is causing them to wear out their welcome. Last year I used iTMS to find some new stuff, and I came up with some jazzy stuff by Code: Indigo and Ramsey Lewis, which I mixed in with the usual Vince Guaraldi ("Charlie Brown Christmas") selections and some old standbys. Frankly, there are plenty of vocalists I can choose from for the slow, traditional stuff...but does anybody have any good suggestions for jazzy, upbeat stuff which is like Mannheim, TSO or Guaraldi? Keep in mind that my little group are all Boomers, so rap is gonna be a little too upbeat for us.
