Fifty years ago drummer Jerry Granelli, the newest member of the Vince Guaraldi Trio, with Fred Marshall on bass, went into a San Francisco studio. In a three-hour session they recorded the soundtrack for a scrappy little animated Christmas special featuring the Peanuts gang. The trio had never seen any of the artwork for the session; no one knew that this would become the iconic soundtrack to the classic A Charlie Brown Christmas. READ MORE

“There are few more emphatically dazzling drummers working today.”—JazzTimes
Drummer Matt Wilson (Joe Lovano, John Scofield, Charlie Haden) and his consummate trio featuring Jeff Lederer saxophone and Paul Sikivie bass put a thoroughly new stamp on the yuletide classics. Embracing chestnuts like “Hark The Herald Angels Sing”, “Winter Wonderland”, “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” and others, they bring a hard swinging-to-out there jazz sensibility to seasonal classics. Masterful musicianship, mischievous humour, vaudevillian flair—Wilson’s trio is a perfect treat for jazz aficionados wishing to celebrate the spirit of the holiday season with joyous abandon.
