Best known as part of Marcus Shelby’s Jazz Orchestra and a creative force on the San Francisco jazz scene for the past decade, pianist Shulman reprises his tribute to Bay Area jazz legend Vince Guaraldi and his soundtrack to Charles Schulz’s 1965 holiday classic, A Charlie Brown Christmas.

Among the most beloved holiday albums of all time, A Charlie Brown Christmas has been certified Triple Platinum with sales of over three million copies. The session was voted into the GRAMMY Hall of Fame in 2007 and was added to the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry’s list of “culturally, historically, or aesthetically important” American recordings. The album includes a definitive version of the Peanuts theme song “Linus and Lucy” and a pair of originals now considered Christmas standards, “Christmas Time Is Here” and “Skating,” as well as new arrangements of classic holiday songs “O Tannenbaum” and “What Child is This,” among others. A San Francisco native, Shulman studied music at UC Santa Cruz and soaked up bandstand wisdom from the late, beloved piano master Smith Dobson and work with Stefon Harris, Miguel Zenón, Luciana Souza, Paula West, Larry Coryell, and Bobby Hutcherson. He brings Guaraldi’s classic to life with a group of the Bay Area’s finest musicians.
