Sleigh Ride

This is my cover of “Sleigh Ride”, composed by Leroy Anderson and first recorded by the Boston Pops Orchestra, conducted by Arthur Fiedler, in 1949. Lyrics were added in 1950. It has been recorded by countless artists, including the Ventures, who included it on their 1965 and 2002 Christmas albums.

My arrangement is pretty much like the original, adapted for guitar, piano, bass and drums.

Love Is All We Have

“Love Is All We Have” is an original composition. I would describe it as being vaguely French-sounding, as I can hear the influence of Michel Legrand and Francis Lai. I’ve arranged a number of their songs recently, and very much admire their work. The style of the setting is intended to be similar to something the Shadows might have done in the 1980s.
