Something about the jazz of Vince Guraldi, combined with the nostalgia of the Peanuts gang, allows this album to be a time machine for me, taking me back to when Christmas was a spectacle of awe and mystery. It seems strange that music can be so evocative and so indescribable at the same time. All that I can say is that it helps me recapture the wonder that I used to have at Christmas.

The specifics:

"O Tannenbaum" and the vocal rendition of "Christmastime is Here" are excellent and just as I remember them. "Fur Elise" is also nice, and "Greensleeves" was a perfect way to end the album. I just wish there were some way to work in Schroeder's rendition of "Jingle Bells" (his staccatto single notes become funnier everytime I hear them).

Vince Guaraldi Trio - O Tannenbaum

This is my very favorite Christmas jazz song of all time. I like listening to instruments playing in the background. "O Tannenbaum" by Vince Guaraldi Trio. I'm in love with this song.
