Video of live performance available Dec. 11
Filmed inside the empty Historic Taylor Theater on the Kenan Center Campus – one of the region’s only live performances in recent months – The Ed Croft Trio performed “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” composed by jazz great Vince Guaraldi. The live recording will be made available to the public on Dec. 11.
A press release said, “The Ed Croft Trio performance includes wonderful story-telling by Ed Croft highlighting Guaraldi and the music of the era.”
The trio features the multi-award-winning Ed Croft on upright bass, Jake Malone Brancato on piano and Candice Simone Thomas on drums. The original soundtrack, which sold over 4 million copies, is considered one of the most beloved holiday albums ever recorded.
“This performance marks our fourth ‘Jazz at the Taylor’ holiday show and we are excited to continue the tradition of bringing music to our community,” spokeswoman Parrish Gibbons Herzog said.
