One of my favorite pieces from Winston's album December is "The Holly and the Ivy," which I offer up for tonight's selection.
An interesting side note: Winston is also well-known for his cover of Guaraldi's "Linus and Lucy," which I posted just two days ago. Turns out that Winston was 16 when A Charlie Brown Christmas premiered in 1965 (a good year for red-headed bloggers as well). He was so enamored of the music that he rushed out to purchase the soundtrack the very next day. He enjoyed the soundtrack so much that he eagerly awaited each new Peanuts special so that he could hear Guaraldi's latest music. Winston's fascination never waned; he went on to create two tribute albums to Guaraldi's music. I knew I liked him for a reason.
