Before he met Charles Schulz (and Charlie Brown), Vince Guaraldi was a household name in jazz because of his work with Cal Tjader and his success with "Cast Your Fate to the Wind" from his Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus album. The CBS television program A Charlie Brown Christmas spread Guaraldis fame far beyond jazz households. First broadcast in 1965, the show is one of the best-loved animated specials in TV history, repeated year after year during the Christmas season. Charlie Browns struggles against the crassness of holiday commercialism in search of the true meaning of Christmas mirrored Guaraldis philosophy of music. Schulzs story struck in Guaraldi a responsive chord - many chords. The simplicity, the rightness of the music he crafted to reflect the personalities of Charlie, Lucy, Snoopy, Linus and the rest of the Peanuts gang is greatly responsible for the success of the production.
