Ever since its debut in 1965, the Vince Guaraldi Trio's album A Charlie Brown Christmas has reigned as a Yuletide classic. The beloved Peanuts animated special from which it sprang was a sensation the first time it aired on CBS-TV, and so was its cool soundtrack by the veteran Bay Area pianist, which introduced countless children to the joys of jazz. Buoyed by annual airings of the program, the album has remained extremely popular ever since. A 1987 reissue went platinum as it sailed to No. 9 on Billboard's pop album charts, an amazing achievement for any holiday collection, much less one more than two decades old at the time. The score for A Charlie Brown Christmas was such a triumph that Guaraldi composed the music for 17 Peanuts television specials in all, a spectacular streak ended only by his untimely death in 1976 at the age of 47. A Charlie Brown Christmas remains the pianist's crowning achievement.
