Jazzfest: Tales of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” 2018
Dominion-Chalmers United Church
December 6, 2018 @ 7PM
Passing on his vast musical insights and Charlie Brown knowledge to a new generation, Granelli and his band (prominent jazz artists Simon Fisk on bass and Chris Gestrin on piano) will work with Ottawa’s The Cross Town Youth Chorus to perform some of the musical numbers.
For more than 50 years, the Christmas classic A Charlie Brown Christmas has entertained generations of fans in what Rolling Stone lists as the top ten most essential Christmas albums of all time.
Jerry Granelli is one third of the fabled San Francisco-based Vince Guaraldi Trio that recorded the original album back in 1965. Part oral history, part concert and part screening, as the only remaining member of the famed trio, Granelli regales audiences with stories and insights into the auspicious recording, providing a unique insider’s perspective for families, Peanuts and jazz music aficionados alike.
