Christmas in New Orleans – Louis Armstrong

Christmas in New Orleans

Christmas Time In New Orleans was recorded by Louis Armstrong With Benny Carter’s Orchestra and written by Sherman; Winkle, Van in September 8, 1955, Los Angeles, CA. Truly a hidden gem and often overlooked, this one is definitely one of my favorites.

Song Lyrics

Magnolia trees at night, sparkling bright
Fields of cotton look wintery white
When it’s Christmastime in New Orleans

A barefoot choir in prayer fills the air
Mississippi folks gathering there
‘Cause it’s Christmastime in New Orleans

You’ll see a dixieland Santa Claus
Leading the band to a good old Creole beat
Golly what a spirit, you can only hear it
Down on Basin Street

Your kids will disappear, when you hear
Hallelujah, St. Nicholas is here
When it’s Christmastime in New Orleans

(Trumpet Solo)

You’ll see a dixieland Santa Claus
A-leading the band to a good, good old Creole beat
And golly what a spirit, and you can only hear it
A-down on Basin Street

Your kids will disappear, and when you hear
Hallelujah, old Santa is near
When it’s Christmastime in New Orleans

Yes, when it’s Christmastime
When it’s Christmastime in New Orleans

Ladies and Gentlemen.
I’m looking for a piano sheetnote with,
or, if possible a total Band Arrangement

Can you help me?
