    Now at Christmas time and after having learned the song this year, I like to throw out "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas". I've found you can have a lot of fun with this piece.

    Normaly I would play the theme from "Hockey Night in Canada"

    'I can't get started', 'Polka dots and moonbeams' or 'La Rejouissance' from Telemann Heroic marches.

    I start playing with this (as softly as I can)

    harlem nocturno
    'round midnight
    autumn leaves
    concierto de aranjuez

    then I continue in more lively fashion with this:

    night in tunisia
    caravan
    all blues

    I like the opening statement of Halsey Steven's Sonata on B flat and Balay's Prelude and Ballade on Flugelhorn.
