Dixieland Style Christmas — From An Italian Dixieland Jazz Band

December 19, 2012

I’m going to feature dixieland style Christmas music tonight (a treat for all you Bix fans).

The band is the Tiger Dixie Band. They’re an Italian dixieland jazz band but there is very little about them online. This is their website — looks like it was last updated in 2008. The site is in Italian. If you open the page in Google Chrome, you should get a prompt to translate the site from Italian to English.

Here is a link to a site where you can purchase some of their music – but not the Christmas CD, “A New Christmas In Dixie Style.”

Enough about the apparent lack of information about the Tiger Dixie Band.

The music is very upbeat and is straight up dixieland jazz. If you have ever attended the Bix Beiderbecke  Jazz Festival, you certainly know what I am talking about.

It’s a different style — but thoroughly enjoyable.

Two cuts from A New Christmas In Dixie Style, “New Christmas” and Christmas Medley. Hope you enjoy it.
