EDITORS’ NOTES

One of the most groundbreaking things about the first Peanuts TV special is Vince Guaraldi's dazzling score. The San Francisco pianist was a key part of the West Coast cool jazz scene, and his graceful piano-trio arrangements sound as hip today as they did in 1965. From the winsome melancholy of "Christmas Time Is Here" to the sparkling joy of "Skating," Guaraldi captures the mixed emotions at the heart of Charles Schulz's characters. And don't forget the downright funky groove of "Linus and Lucy."

Beautiful!

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.

Comforting, Familiar, And Just Right

Growing up in the 60's and 70's, this was an annual tradition that sounded the beginning of the holidays.
Before cable and internet streaming, there was Channel 2 (CBS) in the Chicago area.
Charlie Brown Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
If you didn't see it the night it was scheduled, you lost out for the season.
They were and are very fond memories.
This music brings it all back in a flood of familiarity.

Five stars all the way.
