Does anyone know of a source where I could find good jazz arrangements of Christmas songs? Everything I've found in this vein so far has been too basic.

I really like this book: https://www.amazon.com/Christmas-Songs-Jazz-Piano-Solos/dp/1476812063/

I have a few other jazz Christmas books, but that is the one I play from the most.

Shaun Choo's free and sensationally good Winter Wonderland. You can hear him play it on YT or the link at the bottom of this page:
http://musicshaun.com/product/rudolph-in-winter-wonderland/

Jacob Koller's arrangements of Jingle Bells and Santa Claus is Coming To Town. He plays them on YT.
http://www.jacobkoller.com/sheet-music.html

My folder of Christmas arrangements: Some of the most advanced are Bayless' White Christmas and O'Come All Ye Faithful, Garson's God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen and The Christmas Song, Grainger's The Sussex Mummer's Carol, Rosenblatt's Christmas Fantasy, McKenna's The Christmas Song, and Dave Brubeck's A Christmas Album. But many, actually most, of the somewhat less technically difficult arrangements are incredibly good.

Not sure if this is jazzy enough but very nice arrangements: Readers Digest Merry Christmas for piano and organ. Available used through Amazon.

Just FYI - your share doesn't seem to work. I thought maybe I had to create a Mediafire account, but it still doesn't work. (also, thanks.)

As far as what I'm playing this year. People "back home" mostly want to hear carols, so I've been polishing up all the ones in the Methodist Hymnal. Although I did have to go farther afield to find The Wexford Carol, which isn't in there.

I tried clicking on the link, and it worked for me. I'm not skilled with computers so I can't suggest why it didn't work for you. It does take about 5-10 seconds for the links to all the PDFs to appear, and I think the link has worked for quite a few others in previous years. Anyone else not able to use the link successfully?

For what it's worth, when I click on the link, it redirects me to #myfiles instead of #6gj7sfv4a7tif, which appears to be the name of the share. I tried it in two different browsers and waited, but nothing else appeared. Thanks.

I was not able to access the files last year-- nor this year.

I am using Firefox as my browser. If anyone has any suggestions about how to make my collection available, it would be appreciated.

I think I see what's going on. As a test, I created a shared folder with a picture of some funny dogs from reddit. Here's the link that it tells me to copy and paste:

https://www.mediafire.com/folder/ghurx099vvapi/test

But here's how it appears after I paste that link into a browser and load the page:

https://www.mediafire.com/#ghurx099vvapi

That second link works for me, probably because I'm the owner, but I bet it doesn't work for anybody else. But I can paste that first link into any browser and it goes to my shared directory. Not sure why it works that way, but that's what it does.

Try going back to the folder you want to share, right click on the folder, select "copy link" and then use that as the link to share. Or right-click and select Share, and you'll see the correct link to share - there's even a button to copy it.

I tried the above suggestion so I hope the link works now. Someone please try it and let me know. Hopefully, you'll see one of the largest collection of top quality Christmas arrangements in the galaxy.

Ay Polyphonist, you wanted some music and pianoloverus has brought a big pile. Just looking through would take a long time.
