The Spirit of Vince!

Hey Folks, just a quick spin on what’s coming around the corner for next week.

I’ve been holed up at SpragueLand navigating wonderful semi-ancient tracks of Vince Guaraldi playing the iconic music that eventually became Charlie Brown’s aural muse. For me and for most, this pairing of Peanuts and Vince holds a special place during the holidays. His swing on “O Tannenbaum,” his classic harmonic moves on “Christmas Time is Here,” and of course who can doubt the playful “Linus and Lucy” theme as being a perfect blend of jazz and sweetness — it’s a good moment of San Francisco bred music.

We’re illuminating these sounds, starting with Vince’s themes, paired with my “hopefully not jazz damaged” updates, and bringing the whole circus live to La Jolla next week. It’ll be at the incredible Conrad Theatre which by itself is a must see event. What a great time and I hope you can make it out.
