If you want to see me get all teary-eyed around holiday time, either send me to Costco on Christmas Eve or, for a different sort of choking up, put the needle on the Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack by the Vince Guaraldi Trio. Your heart would seriously have to be made of icy blue steel to not be affected by the songs on that album: “Christmastime Is Here,” “Linus and Lucy”—don’t get me started. Pianist David Benoit agrees, and that’s why he pays tribute to Guaraldi’s life and work with Derrick Bang, author of Vince Guaraldi at the Piano, in a performance coinciding with an exhibit of rare animation cels from the original Peanuts TV specials. Do the Snoopy dance to Benoit’s smooth playing when he appears on Saturday, Nov. 3, at the Schulz Museum. 2301 Hardies Lane, Santa Rosa. 4pm. $10. 707.579.4452.
