Following the success of the first volume in Nikki Iles's acclaimed jazz series, this collection features sophisticated new jazz arrangements of Christmas classics, including 'Let it snow!', 'Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer', 'Away in a manger', and 'Past three o'clock'. A wide variety of styles are represented, from swing and stride to boogaloo and calypso, and the expertly recorded CD, by Nikki Iles, helps with interpretation. With fully notated rhythms, grooves, and improvisations, Jazz on a Winter's Night 2 is the perfect collection for pianists looking for that authentic sound.

Pianist and composer Nikki Iles was a founder member of the Creative Jazz Orchestra - working with Anthony Braxton, Mike Gibbs, Vince Mendoza, and Mark-Anthony Turnage. Her busy freelance career has found her playing with Peter Erskine (CJO), Kenny Wheeler, Art Farmer, Julian Argüelles, Stan Sulzmann, Norma Winstone, Tony Coe, Tina May, and Rufus Reid. Her music has been commissioned and performed also by the London Sinfonietta and Tim Garland's Underground Orchestra. A committed educator, Nikki is senior lecturer at Middlesex University, visiting professor at the Guildhall School of Music, Royal Academy, and Trinity College of Music, London, and an adviser to ABRSM. She holds a British Jazz Award (1996), an award from the International Association for Jazz Education (2002), and was twice nominated for a Parliamentary Jazz Award.
