An Air Force Band album has hit the charts! Congrats to SMSgt Joe Jackson and the USAF Airmen of Note on this exciting accomplishment!! "Cool Yule" is available on iTunes from Altissimo here. The following announcement was posted on the USAF Band's website (view original post here). "Cool Yule Climbs the Charts!" by Master Sgt. Brian McCurdy The USAF Band 1/31/2010 - BOLLING AFB, D.C. -- In January, "Cool Yule", the latest release from the Airmen of Note, climbed to number 2 on the jazz chart of JazzWeek. JazzWeek is the definitive Jazz and Smooth Jazz national radio airplay chart--a weekly report of the top fifty Jazz and Smooth Jazz recordings played on radio stations across the United States and Canada. Senior Master Sgt. Joe Jackson, the Music Director of the Airmen of Note, was overwhelmed with the massive appeal of the recording. "The public and media response to 'Cool Yule' has exceeded our expectations, and has exceeded any of The Air Force Band CD projects any of us here in the Note have been involved with," he said. To hear what all of the buzz is about, you can download two of the tunes from "Cool Yule" from our website. "Up on the Housetop" (arranged by Master Sgt. Alan Baylock), and "Auld Lang Cha Cha Cha" (arranged by Sgt. Jackson) are currently available. While you're there, you can navigate other downloads available from The USAF Band. Congratulations to the Airmen of Note on this terrific accomplishment!
