There was quite a hub bub when it was announced that the much beloved holiday classic A Charlie Brown Christmas would only be available on Apple TV+ this year. (Still wondering how many people upset about that news actually watched it on PBS recently...) In better Charlie Brown Christmas related information, Los Angeles's Sara Noelle recently released a cover of Vince Guaraldi's classic song "Christmas Time is Here." Despite not being a jazz version of the song, Noelle keeps the sound and spirit of Guaraldi alive with hers. It's an alternative pop version, a little more upbeat and whimsical than the original. While the original captures the cartoon and the scene better, Noelle's cover seems to fit the joy of the holiday and the season more.
You can listen to Sara Noelle's version of "Christmas Time is Here" below. The song is available on Noelle's Bandcamp along with an original holiday song, "Christmas at Sea." For more on Sara Noelle, check out the artist's website.
