Holiday songs are a love-hate proposition. At their best, such tunes provide for an evocative seasonal soundtrack. However, they're just as likely to be nauseous, like that cheese log your aunt gave you last year. The year's most ambitious effort comes from the award-winning Tacoma Concert Band.

Friday, Dec. 5: Janis Lives
