A medium swing chart in the style of Basie and Hefti, you'll love this Goodwin adaptation of the wonderful holiday classic. It's not a drum showcase, but the drummer has plenty of solo space beginning on brushes, then to sticks as the intensity rises. There is an optional flute part on second alto and a percussion part for vibes. Optional solo space for alto, tenor, trumpet, and trombone, a lead trumpet range to written high E, plus a nice sax soli round out this excellent chart. You'll want to play it twelve months a year!
