Program Notes

Go Tell It on the Mountain is a rapid exchange of variations between the band the and featured soloist. Stylistic treatments include bossa nova, polka, jazz, call-and-reponse gospel shout and a driving four-beat swing.

- Program Note from publisher

Go Tell It on the Mountain is an African-American spiritual song, compiled by John Wesley Work Jr., dating back to at least 1865, that has been sung and recorded by many gospel and secular performers. It is considered a Christmas carol because its original lyrics celebrate the Nativity of Jesus:

Go tell it on the mountain, over the hills and everywhere;
go tell it on the mountain, that Jesus Christ is born.
