    A Charlie Brown Christmas

    Green Vinyl


    Multi-Platinum-Selling: One Of The Most Popular And Beloved Holiday Albums Of All Time!


    The Original Soundtrack To The Perennially Favorite Holiday TV Special, A Charlie Brown Christmas


    National Recording Registry Inductee, Library Of Congress (2012)


    Grammy Hall Of Fame Inductee (2007)


    Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz called on pianist extraordinaire Vince Guaraldi and his trio to compose and perform music that would reflect the humor, charm, and innocence of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the entire Peanuts gang for their 1965 Christmas TV special. It was a perfect match: 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. This collection of soul-soothing melodies would not be complete without the romantic gem Skating, which 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. Fred Marshall's alluring walking basslines and drummer Jerry Granelli's hauntingly beautiful brush work give most of the album a warm foundation, while Monty Budwig and Colin Bailey shine through with eminent dexterity on bass and drums on Greensleeves. As for Guaraldi, his penetrating improvisational phrases paint pictures of the first winter snowfall, myriad glistening trees, and powdery white landscapes. With its blend of contemporary jazz and lyrical mannerisms, A Charlie Brown Christmas is a joyous and festive meditation for the holiday season.

    From All Sides

    Given Vince Guaraldi's affinity for Brazilian music, this pairing with Brazilian guitarist Bola Sete from the early '60s seems like a natural. On From All Sides, fans of the Peanuts TV specials will recognize Guaraldi's trademark pianistic style, with Menino Pequeno da Bateria being essentially the same tune used as My Little Drum on A Charlie Brown Christmas. The melody of Ginza Samba will also be familiar to the Charlie Brown TV audience. Sete contributes a pair of originals, with Mambeando being especially enjoyable. The group offers a tasty reading of The Girl from Ipanema, and places A Taste of Honey into an interesting Latin groove. The interaction between the two principals here is generally quite good, though Sete's solo appears to be out of kilter rhythmically with Guaraldi's trio on Menino Pequeno. That minor complaint aside, this is an enjoyable, easygoing outing.
    1. Choro
    2. Menino Pequeno Da Bateria
    3. Ginza Samba
    4. The Girl From Ipanema
    5. A Taste Of Honey
    6. Ballad Of Pancho Villa

    A Charlie Brown Christmas (200 Gram) (Out Of Stock)


    Mastered By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio From The Original Stereo Analog Master Tapes


    200-Gram Vinyl, Plated And Pressed At Quality Record Pressings


    Peanuts comic creator Charles M. Schulz called on pianist extraordinaire Vince Guaraldi and his trio to compose and perform music that would reflect the humor, charm and innocence of Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the entire Peanut gang for their 1965 Christmas TV special. It was a perfect match.


    When Guaraldi's A Charlie Brown Christmas album was inducted into the Library of Congress, the Library's media release noted, A Charlie Brown Christmas introduced jazz to millions of listeners. According to annotator and Guaraldi biographer Bang, The importance of [that] sentence can not be overstated. Children all over the world who had resisted jazz as the music of their parents were given an introduction.


    The album's centerpiece track, today as it was in 1965, is Christmas Time Is Here, the soulful instrumental version that clocks in at just over six minutes.
