From the liner notes...

With our latest release, Cool Yule, The United
States Air Force Band presents a unique collection
of entertaining and inspiring holiday favorites. 
Joined by musicians from the Air Force Strings,
Concert Band, Singing Sergeants, and a special
visit by Santa Claus, the Airmen of Note delivers
an exciting "Season's Greeting" to all.

With innovative arrangements by members of the
"Note" and The USAF Band's Music Production
staff, this product captures the sounds of the holiday
season.  The selections are arranged in the style of
well-known favorites such as Sing Sing Sing,
Sentimental Journey, April in Paris, Chattanooga
Choo Choo,
and many others by great American jazz
composers.

We hope you enjoy the holiday season and wish you
C O O L  Y U L E !
