For a while, the only record we had to play during a party was a 78 of Silent Night. This was fine during the slower moments of the party, but was boring when the party got into full swing. Thankfully, someone brought in a new record we had never heard before, one much more appropriate.

Last year while playing out during Christmas time, John brought an arrangement of Silent Night to attention that was wonderfully beautiful. But me being me, getting bored with slow songs had to do something to the piece. Then one day during practice, I popped in David Grisman’s Christmas album, and heard his rhumba-ish version of Silent Night. Wow! Very influential version!
