Christmas in Tucson

Matt Mitchell (he plays guitar) and Marianne Dissard (she doesn't, she sings) form a duo. But they're also solo-artists. And part of bands. And they join each other for special projects. Like the album Christmas in Tuscon, featuring band from the Tucson area playing x-mas songs: Al Perry, Naim Amor, Bob Spasm, Solace Bros., etc. On this album, Matt does a great instrumental rendition of Sleigh Ride, while Marianne (with Matt on guitar) covers Jona Lewie's Stop The Cavalry, with slightly changed lyrics.

That version of "Sleigh Ride" is AMAZING—somewhere between Western Swing and the Hot Club of Paris. Thanks so much for posting this!
