Winter Soulstice

[Preface: this post stems from a good bit of offline discussion; please bear with us and feel welcome to participate.]

Okay, folks. The time has come for The Great Holiday Mix-CD Swap, Ought-Six. If you're interested in participating, please deliver six unmarked CDs to Ryan's house on or before Christmas Day, 2006. If you do not know where Ryan lives, contact him via wryandstanley*atsign*gmail*dot*com.

The Rules:

  1. No packaging aside from a simple conveyance device (suggested: sandwich bag, grocery-store bag, manila envelope).
  2. No writing or other identifying marks on the CDs or the conveyance device. We're striving for anonymity here, people.
  3. Six-CD minimum. Additional CDs will also be created and numbered (at-random) if the pool expands beyond six people.
  4. Audio may be of any variety and is explicitly not limited to, but certainly includes, holiday music.
  5. Further rules may be added based on the ensuing discussion and the whims of this blog's authors.

Ready, break!

Why do they have to be anonymous?

'Cause that makes it fun, Andrea. You don't hate fun, do you?

But also: we're going to have a get-together sometime in February where whose disc is whose will be revealed. In the interim, rampant speculation. See? Fun.

I'M IN. although just making 6 copies of the vince geraldi soundtrack to a charlie brown christmas would be a dead giveaway that it's me. who cares?

Well, t(h)om has promised the Giraldi CD, and mine will naturally be a compendium of pagan chants and ballads*. So there's two holiday CDs right there.

*No, really**.

**No, not really.

THOM - I heard a great piece about Geraldi and Shultz on NPR the other morning. Shultz was driving across the Golden Gate Bridge, preparing to talk with his good friend DAVE BRUBECK about writing some music for this new Christmas show Shultz was contracted to do, when, from the depths of radio, Shultz heard some great piano music. He spent three months tracking Geraldi down, and they got on well, and the next thing you know, Shutlz has done 50 (fifty!) TV specials with the Peanuts gang, and Geraldi has written the soundtracks for 17 of them.

In the end, though, Geraldi lived in relative obscurity, still making his money playing small jazz gigs, which is by no means a bad thing, but he never made it big. Like Brubeck

He never made it big, as evidenced by the rampant misspelling of his name on blogs everywhere. (I was guilty, too. Dammit.)

i heard the same thing on NPR, Ryan. It def got me in The Spirit.

i believe they said he composed music for all but 17 of the specials, bringing his grand total to 33 out of the 50. That was how I remember hearing it, but either way, that was some creative relationship between the peanuts and pianist...

oh, and it's Guaraldi.

despite not acheiving the chart-worthy popularity that Brubeck did, it is my understanding that Vince and his trios travelled the world performing at a moderate and respectable (for jazz) level of success. Stanley, why don't you do some research on his story and update us with a Vince Guaraldi life and times retrospective?

I do have other recordings of his besides the christmas record and another charlie brown soundtrack ("a boy named charlie brown"). i'd be happy to share with you guys anytime.

two very good ones are titled "a flower is a lovesome thing" and "jazz impressions".

btw: ryan was correct and i misheard the story. If Guaraldi composed the score for every charlie brown special from the christmas one to the year he died (1976) it would have been exactly 17 installments.
the wiki entry on guaraldi said he finished the score for the last one, it's Arbor Day, Charlie Brown, on the day he died.

fucking tree-hugger, that Charlie Brown.

What, your blog's broken? Doesn't look broken. Just dusty.
