Christmas Wonderland
At Christmas, the world becomes a brighter, happier, shining place-a veritable wonderland. So, who could musically illuminate it better than the man who made his name synonymous with "wonderland" - Bert Kaempfert.

The singing trumpet and ear-arresting rhythms of Bert Kaempfert have become one of the most immediately recognizable sounds on the musical scene. With virtuoso artistry and imaginative arrangements, he sends thrilling tones soaring, carrying melodies to new heights of listening enjoyment.

Christmas, of course, is a time of traditional sounds: the crunch of snow underfoot, the tinkling of bells, a crackling fire that reminds us that home is where the hearth is. The magic of Bert Kaempfert music captures all these familiar images for us, and dresses them up in festive wrappings.

In this sure-to-be-welcomed Christmas package, Bert has included a wide range of Yuletide favorites. There is the universal hope expressed in 'White Christmas'...the moving story of 'The Little Drummer Boy' - interpreted instrumentally...the exuberant expectation in 'Santa Claus is Comin' to Town' and 'Jumpin' Jiminy Christmas'...the gaiety of 'Sleigh Ride'...the inspirational joy of 'I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day'. In addition, there is a delightful surprise gift of new Kaempfert creations such as 'Jingo Jango' and 'Holiday for Bells' which we predict will become your lasting favorites.

At Christmas time we hang up our stockings (even if it's just in our mind's eye) and hope that something special will be gift-wrapped with our name on it. This album is that kind of thrilling experience. It's your engraved invitation to spend a particularly joyous holiday in the "Christmas Wonderland" of Bert Kaempfert. May he make it your merriest ever.
