“My vision for this recording is to create a musical journey through the deeper themes of the Christmas narrative. Using ancient canticles, hymns, and folk melodies, I chose 11 pieces to formulate a layered chronology that illustrates the profound, spiritual mystery of the radical biblical story of the birth of Christ.”

The Will Scruggs Jazz Fellowship transforms a 16th century French Folk song into pure, resplendent jazz, from the group’s 2012 album, “Song of Simeon: A Christmas Journey.”
