Adam Shulman: A Charlie Brown Christmas

  • SFJAZZ Joe Henderson Lab 201 Franklin Street San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States (map)

Details

Among the most beloved holiday albums of all time, A Charlie Brown Christmas has been certified Triple Platinum with sales of over three million copies. The session was voted into the GRAMMY Hall of Fame in 2007 and was added to the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry’s list of “culturally, historically, or aesthetically important” American recordings. The album includes a definitive version of the Peanuts theme song “Linus and Lucy” and a pair of originals now considered Christmas standards, “Christmas Time Is Here” and “Skating,” as well as new arrangements of classic holiday songs “O Tannenbaum” and “What Child is This,” among others.

Pianist Adam Shulman, who has been part of Marcus Shelby’s Jazz Orchestra and a creative force on the San Francisco jazz scene for the past decade, brings Guaraldi’s classic to life with bassist John Wiitala and drummer James Gallagher.

Shulman swings hard, exudes confidence and takes chances, while never veering too far off course.
