This CD was created to benefit the Hearts of Music Fund - a not-for-profit corporation that helps uninsured musicians. Over the course of the last ten years, many of my trombone playing friends and I have been having a big neighborhood Christmas party at which we play these arrangements. We then started doing a benefit concert each year for the Hearts of Music Fund. This CD grew out of the popularity of those events. We hope that it becomes part of your Holiday seasonal celebrations for many years to come. Bill Reichenbach is a trombonist and arranger/composer working in the Los Angeles recording industry.
