The reissue includes alternate takes of several tracks, and great liner notes detailing the history of the project. If all of this screams “stocking stuffer,” please don’t let me stop you. Nostalgic though it may be, anything that’s as full of introspection, empathy, disappointment, loneliness, and the perpetual hope of better things around the corner can’t be all bad. Like the strip, Guaraldi’s songs here are small, observant miracles. (Pitchfork)
Something about the jazz of Vince Guraldi, combined with the nostalgia of the Peanuts gang, allows this album to be a time machine for me, taking me back to when Christmas was a spectacle of awe and mystery. It seems strange that music can be so evocative and so indescribable at the same time. All that I can say is that it helps me recapture the wonder that I used to have at Christmas.
The specifics:
"O Tannenbaum" and the vocal rendition of "Christmastime is Here" are excellent and just as I remember them. "Fur Elise" is also nice, and "Greensleeves" was a perfect way to end the album. I just wish there were some way to work in Schroeder's rendition of "Jingle Bells" (his staccatto single notes become funnier everytime I hear them).
Vince Guaraldi Trio - O Tannenbaum
This is my very favorite Christmas jazz song of all time. I like listening to instruments playing in the background. "O Tannenbaum" by Vince Guaraldi Trio. I'm in love with this song.
