* JGDB has “Take Five”, performed by the Peter Gennaro Dancers, after “Here We Come A-Caroling”, but before “The Christmas Song”. This appears to be an error, since the second part of the show opens with Mel Tormé arriving at the home with the carollers singing “Here We Come A-Caroling,” and within seconds Tormé is seated at the piano with JG, introducing “The Christmas Song”.
