    Are you looking for listening enjoyment, or for arrangement ideas for Christmas gigs?
    If the latter, there are some "Christmas Real Books " out there; grab one and go for it!
    [We have the "Charlie brown Christmas" charts, which always play well this time of year!]

    I like Kevin Eubanks' version of Silver Bells from the Windham Hill "A Winter's Solstice III" disc. There are a lot of cool arrangements by a variety of artists on this disc:

    I would suggest Larry Carlton's "Christmas at my house"
    I play a lot of atonal jazz.. . . . . . . .but not on purpose.
