Jingle Bells is a Christmas hit known all over the world, so why not play it in some diverse global styles? This was my initial thought when I began working on this arrangement.

The opening takes us straight into a Disney movie, then some Irish flutes invite you to take a sleigh ride somewhere up north in Lapland.

Down by the river Volga a Russian hero sings a ballad and a complete Rimsky-Korsakov orchestra answers.

A harp invites you for a French waltz a la Ravel... or is it Strauss?

Thereafter a Bavarian polka sets the right tempo to finish the song, sounding like a Big Band with a boulevard of Hollywood strings before Rudolf leaves us with a last farewell.

Just have fun…
