23/12/2014 – Vince Guaraldi Trio-Christmas Time is Here (1965)

One of the best Christmas songs, from one of the best Christmas films ever

 

 

In the history of Christmas specials, there are winners and losers. Yogi Bear. Winner. Community. Winner. He-Man. Loser. Chipmunks. Loser. In the bastion of winners a few are above even them. One of them is A Charlie Brown Christmas. The crux of the episode simple. Charlie Brown hates how commercial Christmas is and wants to find it’s true meaning. Hilarity ensures and through Charles M. Schulz’s pathos, Vince Guaraldi’s score the story comes to a heart-warming conclusion.

 

 

 

 

As with the original Charlie Brown cartoons, Vince Guaraldi’s score is an important part. What makes this special different is that Guaraldi adds Christmas motif’s in with his usual blend of cool smooth jazz. It’s these motif’s and covers of classic Christmas songs that makes this song, and respective album, so playable.

 

 

If you are hosting Christmas cocktails, why not play this in the background and have a Cool Christmas…
