Tales of a Charlie Brown Christmas with the Jerry Granelli Trio & The Coastal Sound Children’s Choir
Sunday November 29th, 2015
Reserved – All Ages Welcome!
Fifty years ago drummer Jerry Granelli, the newest member of the Vince Guaraldi Trio, with Fred Marshall on bass, went into a San Francisco studio. In a three-hour session they recorded 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 fateful recording in 1965. With his new trio Simon Fisk bass and Chris Gestrin piano, the band looks to recreate the magic of this classic piece of music. Grandparents and parents alike get to bring a new generation to jazz in this seventy-five minute production that includes a children’s choir. Enchanting stories blend with enduringly beautiful music to capture the joy and spirit of the Christmas season.
