Our critics' picks in new releases

Waxed 40 years ago, these blaring big band charts were inked by Ralph Charmichael, famous for his mainstream arrangements of religious fare. Nevertheless, all the brassy Kenton signatures sing out--from the steely trombones to the inventive clang of glockenspiels. A rousing bonus track by former Kenton trumpeter Maynard Ferguson nearly steals the show. The ambitious medley, titled--fanfare please--"Christmas for Moderns," frames MF's signature high notes. With ears twitching, the family pup no doubt will howl along.
