Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad and Mele Kalikimaka!
About 20 years ago, I discovered a CD while stopping for gas at a random travel station somewhere in Georgia. All these years later, it has remained among my favorite holiday albums of all time.
It's titled "A Christmas Tribute to Mannheim Steamroller" and was recorded by a group called The Westwind Ensemble.
I've since tried to learn more about this group called the Westwind Ensemble, but nothing has come from any internet searches.
If you know anything about them, please contact me!
At any rate, I want to share the album with you. It's in the spirit of Mannheim Steamroller, and in many ways I like it better than MS.
Really unique and fun arrangements of classic Christmas carols!
Here's the playlist:

- Hark the Herald Angels Sing
- Good King Wenceslas
