Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
This jazzy Christmas tutorial on ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town’ is based on the chords and changes from the Bill Evans arrangement – check it out if you haven’t heard it already.
We simplify and shorten the arrangement into a 2 page transcription that can be downloaded below. Print yourself a copy which will be a useful supplement when watching the lesson.
The arrangement is quite challenging, containing upper structure triads and examples of suspended harmony – it’s nice to see how a master of jazz piano employs these devices in his playing.
