Vince Guaraldi Trio - A Charlie Brown Christmas
Originally broadcast in 1965, A Charlie Brown Christmas is hands down one of the most beloved specials in TV history. Commissioned by Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz, Vince Guaraldi and his trio rounded out by Monty Budwig (bass) and Colin Bailey (drums), composed and performed the timeless contemporary jazz score which wonderfully reflects both the spirit of the legendary Peanuts characters and the Christmas season.
A Grammy Hall of Fame inductee in 2007, A Charlie Brown Christmas was inducted into the Library of Congress in May of 2012 with the accompanying statement, “A Charlie Brown Christmas introduced jazz to millions of listeners,” and 45 plus years on it’s still doing just that. Peanuts and Vince Guaraldi historian Derrick Bang even goes so far as to say, “Back people into a corner and limit them to just one holiday album for the rest of their lives, and I suspect that an impressive number of folks, jazz fans or not, would select this one!” Reissued here on green colored vinyl by Fantasy Records.
