chaz jazz.


I headed into Downtown Los Angeles (DTLA) at noon today to make sure that I caught The Joey Altruda Trio playing their rendition of Vince Guaraldi’s beloved jazz soundtrack to the holiday cartoon classic “A Charlie Brown Christmas”. The crisp but relatively warm afternoon (upper 50s) made it a perfect setting for the 50th anniversary of the album, which has become a musical gem for Americans of all ages. I got to hang a bit with my friends Amanda and Farah, and have a bowl of the paella from Grand Central Market’s “Bombo” eatery, which made it a great outing all around. Feeling the holiday spirit just a bit more thanks to today. Grateful 🙂
