    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.

    A Charlie Brown Christmas

    A Charlie Brown Christmas is a 1965 studio album by American composer/conductor Vince Guaraldi (later credited to the jazz group the Vince Guaraldi Trio). The album was originally released in December 1965 in the United States by Fantasy Records. It is the soundtrack to the CBS Christmas television special of the same name. Guaraldi was contacted by television producer Lee Mendelson several years prior to compose music for a documentary on the comic strip Peanuts and its creator, Charles M. Schulz. Although the special went unaired, these selections were released in 1964 as Jazz Impressions of A Boy Named Charlie Brown. Coca-Cola commissioned a Christmas special based on Peanuts in 1965 and Guaraldi returned to score the special.

    Cal Tjader's Latin Concert

    As Cal Tjader's reputation and popularity grew as one of the major forces in Afro-Cuban jazz, he was able to hire some of the music's most able artists. On this 1958 album, recorded at San Francisco's famous Black Hawk, his band included percussionists Mongo Santamaria and Willie Bobo, pianist Vince Guaraldi, and bassist Al McKibbon, a veteran of the Dizzy Gillespie band that opened American ears to the charms and urgencies of Afro-Cuban rhythms. Having Al in the band, Tjader once said, is an impossible dream come true. Among the pieces here are several by Tjader and one that was destined to become a classic in the literature of Latin jazz, Ray Bryant's Cubano Chant.
    1. Viva Cepeda
    2. Mood for Milt
    3. The Continental
    4. Lucero

    Stan Getz / Cal Tjader Sextet


    This Newly Reissued Vinyl Addition Is A 'Must Have' Title For For Both Getz And Tjader Fans.


    In the vein of many a smooth West Coast jazz outing, this 1958 disc finds original cool stylist Getz paired with vibraphonist Cal Tjader on a very enjoyable
    selection of jazz standards and Tjader originals. The lineup includes pianist Vince Guaraldi, guitarist Eddie Duran, bassist Scott La Faro, and drummer
    Billy Higgins (this was one of the earliest record dates for either La Faro or Higgins, both of whom were playing with Getz at San Francisco's Black Hawk
    in between recording sessions). Guaraldi's spry Ginza Samba kicks thing off with nimble and imaginative statements by all the soloists. Tjader's
    swinging originals Crow's Nest and Big Bear provide prime solo vehicles as well, while his lovely waltz number Liz-Anne adds some nice contrast to
    the set, eliciting one of Getz's best solos in the process. The group rounds things out with fine ballad readings of I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face
    and For All We Know.


    Stan Getz: one of the all-time great tenor saxophonists


    Cal Tjader: The legendary percussionist who is often linked to the development of Latin rock and acid jazz. Although fusing jazz with Latin music is often
    categorized as Latin jazz (or, earlier, Afro-Cuban jazz), Tjader's output swung freely between both styles.

    This San Francisco trio of the mid-1950s has a sparkling personality all its own, with a refreshing lack of
    pretentiousness. With an ebullient swing on the up-tempos, and a subtle, unhackneyed approach to ballads such as Sweet and Lovely and jazz standards such as John Lewis's Django", this 1956 LP marks Guaraldi's triumphant first complete album as a leader. With Eddie Duran and Dean Reilly.

    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.

    2. Menino Pequeno Da Bateria

    Imagene Peise - Atlas Eets Christmas

    ATLAST EETS CHRISTMAS was previously released in a very limited physical quantity on CD only under the pseudonym Imagene Peise (with a sticker that read Love Is The Answer - Merry Christmas From The Flaming Lips 2007). The pseudonym Imagene Peise is a John Lennon-esque spelling of Imagine Peace, ala Lennon's wonsaponatime, and likewise the album title sounds-out At last, it's Christmas. The alias credits are similarly punning: Imagene Peise - Piano Ominog Bangh - Laughing/Crying Glider Synthesizer Shineyu Bhupal - Drones, Sitar, and Baritone Tambura.


    From the Flaming Lips' presumably vast vault of curiosities comes Atlas Eets Christmas, a psych-jazz piano album that originally appeared in a very limited run under the pseudonym Imagene Peise during the 2007 holiday season. Billed as a lost album by a mysterious young Iraqi piano prodigy name Peise who committed suicide in 1978, the album plays like the soundtrack to some sort of unearthed educational filmstrip where science meets Santa.


    The same could be said about much of the Lips' more experimental output, which does include other Yuletide offerings, most notably the soundtrack to their 2008 film Christmas on Mars. Almost entirely instrumental and buried under the weight of a fabricated faux-vinyl crackle, Atlas frames their lovely piano arrangements of such classics as Winter Wonderland, Do You Hear What I Hear?, and White Christmas with buzzing sitars, spacy electronic noises, distant synths, and the band's hallmark Mellotron drones.


    The result is a warmly intended yet moon-cold Christmas album that is still surprisingly pleasant. Although Wayne Coyne does make his presence known singing lead on the Vince Guaraldi-esque title cut (most likely through an old telephone from his home office on Mars), this largely seems to be the baby of multi-instrumentalist Steven Drozd, whose graceful piano playing makes up the bulk of this unusual venture.

    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.
