“Isn't there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?!” Charlie Brown exclaims in A Charlie Brown Christmas. “Sure, Charlie Brown, I can tell you what Christmas is all about” answers Linus in a quiet, matter-of-fact tone. For many, A Charlie Brown Christmas and the accompanying score by Vince Guaraldi answer Charlie Brown’s question perfectly.

For their 10-year anniversary, Jeffrey Bützer and T.T. Mahony with Mike Beshera and a small chorus of guest singers will perform Guaraldi’s score to A Charlie Brown Christmas with a spirit only fitting of Charlie Brown himself. By relying both on an honest presentation of Guaraldi’s intentions for the record and enough improvisation to keep their jazz credibility in check, the trio are in finer form each year. There is perhaps no better Christmas album than this 40-minute score featuring all the hushed, memorable, but often melancholy undertones that define the holiday. And there is perhaps no better band performing it than Bützer, Mahony, and Beshera.
The trio plays Chattanooga, TN on December 2nd, Woodstock, GA on December 6th, and Birmingham, AL on December 14th before taking up their annual two-night stand at The EARL on December 15th and 16th. Both the Chattanooga and Woodstock shows are free and all ages. All shows are in a spirit only fitting of Charlie Brown himself.
As with years past, this show finds the trio pulling out a few extra surprises to make these shows ones to remember. This year, the trio will augment their lineup to also perform Phil Spector’s seminal LP A Christmas Gift For You in full. Jeffrey Bützer & The Bicycle Eaters open the shows with a short set as wel, so don’t be late.
These shows generally sell out, so getting tickets in advance is highly recommended.
