"A Charlie Brown Christmas" by Vince Guaraldi feat. The OrnamentsPop/Rock
You might not know the name Vince Guaraldi, but his music is instantly recognizable: He composed the music for A Charlie Brown Christmas, likely the only TV special to spawn a 40-year best-selling soundtrack. Guaraldi’s compositions are jazzy, moody and spare; they manage to avoid cloying cheeriness in original tunes like “Christmas Time Is Here,” and bring mid-century-modern cool to classics like “What Child Is This.” Enjoy these songs performed live by The Ornaments, a local piano-bass-drum trio that’s drawn rave reviews for their Charlie Brown covers. This is the rare kid-friendly Christmas concert that parents will find more endearing than annoying. And it offers the chance to turn off the TV and take in some live entertainment — Charlie would surely approve.
