"Christmas Time Is Here"

>> Wednesday, December 22, 2010

If you're of a certain TV-watching age, I doubt there's any composer more evocative of Christmastime than jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi. Great composer and wonderful player, but what he'll always be known for more than anything else is his score for A Charlie Brown Christmas, a perennial holiday favorite since it debuted almost half a century ago (!) in 1965. Just the first few sprinkled notes of "Christmas Time Is Here" is enough to conjure images of snow, kids skating and little trees that aren't that bad after all, they just need a little love.

Here's guitarist Rob Bourassa performing "Christmas Time Is Here":
