Description

Stephen Primatic’s arrangment of Christmas Time Is Here from A Charlie Brown Christmas captures the jazziness and tender nature of Vince Guaraldi’s original trio recording.

Primatic takes Guaraldi’s original tune and writes it to resemble an improvised solo, incorporating dissonant extended harmonies reminiscent of jazz giants like Thelonious Monk. These harmonies are skillfully voiced so that the original tune is not obscured. No dynamics are indicated so the performer is free to be as varied and expressive as they wish, making this piece an even more intimate and personal experience.

Christmas Time Is Here ships in a printed, professionally bound folio with a full color cover.



Performed by Brian Blume.

Instrumentation

Vibraphone
