Fifty years ago drummer Jerry Granelli, the newest member of the Vince Guaraldi Trio, with bassist Fred Marshall, went into a San Francisco studio to record the soundtrack for a scrappy little animated Christmas special featuring the Peanuts gang. The trio had never seen any of the artwork for the session; no one knew that this would become the iconic soundtrack to the classic A Charlie Brown Christmas.
Granelli is the only surviving member of the line-up that made that famous 1965 recording. With his new trio featuring Simon Fisk (bass) and Chris Gestrin (piano), the band looks to recreate the magic of this classic album. Grandparents and parents alike get to bring a new generation to jazz in this seventy-five minute production that includes the Young Sudbury Singers singing “Christmas Time is Here” and other seasonal selections. Enchanting stories blend with enduringly beautiful music to capture the joy and spirit of the Christmas season.
