This Holiday Season, All About Jazz is All About Guaraldi

An Exclusive Opportunity For All About Jazz Readers To Participate In The Celebration Of A Jazz Legend.
Vast audiences were first introduced to jazz through a cartoon special about Charlie Brown's uneasy relationship with Christmas…

And many more were attracted by the sound of the early cross-over hit, “Cast Your Fate To The Wind“…

It's fair to say that composer/pianist Vince Guaraldi helped shape the landscape of popular jazz, bringing generations along with him to appreciate and further explore the music.

If you are a reader of All About Jazz (and we know that you are), you're also active in this on-going celebration of jazz in all its forms. And we want to return the love right back at you—Guaraldi-style!

From now until Sunday, December 18th, All About Jazz has arranged for an exclusive opportunity to enjoy Vince through the award-winning feature documentary The Anatomy of Vince Guaraldi on DVD and online streaming, with an accompanying production booklet, and a Bonus DVD collection of special material.

Oh, and this includes your name on-screen as a “thank you" in the credits!

What's in the movie? Unreleased footage of Guaraldi in the studio and in performance, plus unreleased Vince recordings scoring the on-screen participation of Dave Brubeck, Dick Gregory, John Handy, Jon Hendricks, Jerry Granelli, George Winston, Eddie Duran, Ashley Kahn, Robben Ford, David Benoit… well, the list goes on.

The Bonus DVD? Some of the more intimate moments with Brubeck and the others, plus longer musical sequences of Vince that just didn’t fit. (It’s a one-time-only collection)

All About Jazz is helping this Kickstarter effort, but unlike regular visitors to the campaign, our readers get ALL this for only $100.—that's 66% off! This is an exclusive offer for AAJ readers only, our way of saying “Happy Holidays!"

It's a perfect gift for yourself, or for anyone who digs Vince. (And don’t you know someone who would love to see their name featured on a movie about a jazz legend?)

What you get for your $100 contribution:
  • The Anatomy of Vince Guaraldi DVD;
  • Access to stream the film online;
  • Production Booklet;
  • Bonus DVD collection of special material;
  • Your name in the film credits!
Here's how you can be part of the celebration:
  1. Go to the Anatomy of Vince Guaraldi Kickstarter page;
  2. Look for the “ALL ABOUT JAZZ" premium level (on the right);
  3. Make your discounted contribution and leave the rest to us!

As Vince's long-time session partner Bola Sete might say, “Thanks a Brazilian for checking it out!"
