Subject: RE: THE ONE HORSE OPEN SLEIGH (Jingle Bells)
Have you all ever heard of Leo Watson?
He was scat-singing bebop BEFORE bebop was invented!
He made 20th century recordings,
including a 1946 rip-snorting take on Jingle Bells.
Which sort of comes back around.

Maybe we ought to let Mister Watson have the last word.
Warning:
DON'T LISTEN IF YOU WANT TO GO TO SLEEP.
this kind of stuff is like caffeine.


Jingle Bells gets the bebop treatment
