Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
Mark features once again in the Classical Guitar magazine with a brilliant arrangement of 'Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas'. Mark writes: "I’ve decided to arrange this seasonal popular song in a jazz idiom, in homage to master composer/ arranger/ guitarist Roland Dyens, who passed away recently".
