The holiday season always means Christmas Jazz Music on Jazz 91.9 WCLK and this season is no different. Program Director David C. Linton has added a new cut featuring Dave Koz and Jonathon Butler--the classic It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas, from his new holiday release Gifts Of The Season(Just Koz Entertainment). But this version isn't like Perry Como or Bing Crosby. This version includes 21st century beats and percussion and the inimitable horn of Dave Koz and Jonathon Butler's guitar stylings. It even has an Afro-Pop percussion breakdown.

Programming on Jazz 91.9 WCLK is made possible in part by the Sadie G. Mays Health And Rehabilitation Center, a proud WCLK Business Member. Sadie G.
