> Does anyone know a tune called "Christmas in Dixieland" ??

Dear Charles,
"Christmas in Dixieland [Notturno Swing]" was recorded in December 1965, in Brussels, Belgium by Brother Powell And His Dixie Rag-A-Jazz Band: 
Herman Sandy, Jules Van Dijck, Janot Morales (tp) Albert Brinkhuizen (tb) Jose Paessens (cl) Guy Dossche (bar) Ivon De Bie (p) Frank Sanders (bj) Paul Dubois (b) Josse Aerts (d) David Bee (arr/ldr) 

I suspect that it was composed by this group's leader David Bee.
Listmate Gerard Bielderman may be able to confirm this.

Mr Bee was the composer of "High Tension" recorded by the Luis Russell Orchestra in September 1930 and in Europe in 1929 by Lud Gluskin, The Ramblers, and at the above Dixie Rag-A-Jazz Band session.
Very kind regards,
