Music Thursday: Vince Guaraldi Trio “Greensleeves”

Because Monday is already taken. This column will feature music I listen to when I write, or maybe sometimes music I just like (and therefore think everyone else should, too).

One of the reasons I love Christmas music is that a musician can take a song everyone has head a thousand times and do something different with it to make it completely new and yet familiar at the same time:

Vince Guaraldi composed and performed the music for A Charlie Brown Christmas, the greatest Christmas special of all time, which includes jazz renditions of several Christmas carols, including this one of “Greensleeves” or “What Child is This,” also one of my favorite carols.
