For this livestream show we explore the outer realms of holiday music. As the title suggests, Charlie Brown, from “Peanuts” fame, grants us permission to go mental into the aural realm. This we shall and the first stop is how jazz, Vince Guaraldi, Charlie Brown, and Christmas music met up and changed the landscape of the holidays. For the better we think and it’ll be a hoot sharing “Christmas Time is Here,” “Christmas is Coming,” and our blues tinged version of Vince’s “Linus and Lucy” with you. That’s a start and then we travel to a song about a modern day scrooge contrasted to a blissful “Christmas Is Love.”
And we’ll probably end the show with a samba-fied “Winter Wonderland.”
Charlie and Vince would approve.
The band includes some of the best with:
Allison Adams Tucker — vocals
Beth Ross Buckley — flute
Tripp Sprague —sax and flute
Danny Green — piano
Justin Grinnell — bass
Duncan Moore —drums
Peter Sprague — guitar
It’ll be fun and I sure hope you can tune in.
all best, Peter
