I agree, there are some really nice tracks in this release. Forgot to mention Little Drummer Boy, another fine version.
I hope we will hear more in the future.
Good to know that Jack Traylor is still making music. I liked his album with Steelwind on the Grunt-label, which, by the way, still seems to be available in CD-form on jacktraylor.com.
@ CookOfTheHouse: well, it is not really Airplane christmas-songs, but Jorma Kaukonen released an album in 1996, aptly titled "Christmas".
