Editors’ Notes

Jazz trumpeter/composer/educator Wynton Marsalis often mentions how the only jazz he heard on TV in his youth was Vince Guaraldi’s music for Peanuts specials. First released in 1965, A Charlie Brown Christmas is the most beloved and influential of those soundtracks. In addition to revisiting the joyful “Linus and Lucy” from the previous year’s A Boy Named Charlie Brown, this holiday classic introduced the pianist’s standard “Christmas Time is Here” in both instrumental and vocal forms as well his popular “Skating” and “Christmas is Coming.” Traditional carols, including Mel Torme’s (accent ague over the "e") “The Christmas Song,” are also given cool piano jazz trio treatments. This Expanded Version features “Greensleeves” plus composition a piece from the Peanuts' Halloween and Thanksgiving programs.

Customer Reviews


There's nothing like some good ol charlie brown to get you into that holiday spirit. This album really gives your body that christmas tingle. Skating is my favorite song. I put this on repeat every night to help me fall asleep. Im 15 and I love cute stuff like this! I highly reccomend this for anyone wanting to be in a Christmas mood.

This music brings it all back in a flood of familiarity.

Five stars all the way.

Vince Guaraldi was a well-respected jazz pianist whose greatest success came from avenues usually closed to contemporary jazz artists: he enjoyed a hit single at a time when jazz had largely been exiled from the pop charts, and he scored a series of very successful animated television specials, a medium where cookie-cutter pop music was traditionally the order of the day. Vincent Anthony Guaraldi was born in San Francisco, California on July 17, 1928. A loyal son of the Bay Area, Guaraldi graduated...
