Last night a friend was reminiscing about the wonderful Dave Brubeck on Facebook who sadly passed away three years ago this month. As a result I ended up listening to A Dave Brubeck Christmas and I really enjoyed his interpretation of Away In A Manger, so that’s what I’m playing today. It’s the version of the song written by James R. Murray which I believe is the most common version in the U.S. In addition to Dave Brubeck’s recording I have always loved Nat King Cole’s recording of this version of the song.
I hope you enjoy this lovely, jazzy version of this Christmas carol. If it’s your first time on the site, find out more about the 365 Songs project. For more Christmaciousness, see all of my December songs here.
