I'd forgotten just how beautiful the jazz score in this program really is, and how it exposed American kids to high quality jazz.    I know, it's a TV show, but I figure this was the best subforum to place it.  

Watching it now.   Anyone have the score?   Do you all like it as much as I?

"Christmastime is Here" would leave me feeling very melancholy afterward, which for a time made me dislike it. It wasn't until I started playing it from a Christmas fakebook I got one year that I started realizing how interesting the changes were that give it it's unique sound.

Great soundtrack. It made me like jazz at the age of 10 or 11, years before I got into jazz, fusion, and progressive music in general. I throw it on at least once around this time of year.

Vince Guaraldi is nothing short of a genius...
