Great Music From Prior Generations: Vince Guaraldi

Vince Guaraldi was a great jazz pianist who is famous for creating theme music for “Peanuts” cartoons.  He died in 1976 while on break from a music gig in Menlo Park, California.  Heart attack.  I love his music and have several CD’s of his music.  I especially love the string bass in his music, being an aspiring bassist myself.   The video below is of the song “O Tannebaum,” from the TV special “It’s Christmas, Charley Brown!”  It was made in 1963.  Enjoy the sights of Peanuts and the music of the great Vince Guaraldi.
