Jerry Granelli stands on stage and tells the story of how it, all of it, almost never happened. Somehow disaster was averted at every turn and the magic of the music, of Charlie Brown, the vision of Vince Guaraldi, persevered. It is, today, undeniably a classic, a part of the canon. This may be a look back but the music remains king—to play it and to hear it live, living and breathing. There is no question that almost no one has had the opportunity to hear this music played the way The Vince Guaraldi Trio used to play it late into the San Francisco nights. So with this show what is already part of our seasonal aural DNA is jettisoned to a whole new emotional level live and personal. Jerry Granelli and his trio spend ninety minutes drawing from the Charlie Brown Christmas Special soundtrack, and sharing the stage with a local children’s choir. There are some stories, lots of music and a wave of Christmas spirit, and even tears of joy
