About the Bublé Band Collaboration
Several years ago, Buble Band members began writing their own arrangements of traditional Christmas songs to pass their time on the road during the holiday season. The band would gather in a hotel room or backstage and play each other their personal recordings of their arrangements that they had composed. These offstage collaborations inspired Alan Chang to produce an album of the best of the Bublé Band’s arrangements. “Cold December Night” is made available to the public November 15th on iTunes.com and Amazon.com.
