Description
The memorable 1965 TV special A Charlie Brown Christmas has become a perennial favorite in large part because of the musical contributions of the Vince Guaraldi Trio. Lyrical and evocative, the twelve selections include “Greensleeves,” “O Tannenbaum,” “My Little Drum,” “Für Elise,” and “Hark! the Herald Angels Sing.” (San Francisco pianist Guaraldi, who played with Woody Herman and Cal Tjader, had a strong influence on the young George Winston.)

“Guaraldi strings together elegant, enticing arrangements that reflect the spirit and mood of Schulz’s work and introduce contemporary jazz to youngsters with grace, charm and creativity. ‘What Child Is This’ touches on cool jazz's richly textured percussive nuances, while ‘The Christmas Song’ reflects Christmas' relaxing, mellow moments. The renowned ‘Linus and Lucy’ gives the Peanuts characters a fresh, energetic feel with its tantalizing meter changes, brilliant percussion, and dashing, humorous piano lines. ‘Christmastime Is Here,’ perhaps the album's most endearing and eloquent moment, is six minutes of soft, lullaby-like melodic and percussive flavors…. The romantic gem ‘Skating’ blends musical references to falling snowflakes with the dashing feel of swing. Finally, the uplifting, emotionally stirring swing tune ‘Christmas Is Coming’ really brings the listener into the joyous light of the Christmas spirit.”—All Music Guide
