5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Standards Vince Guaraldi January 3, 2012
By Hotcha!
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this album. I've purchased some as gifts as well as for myself. It's a great Guaraldi compilation! His style is always crisp and clean, but energetic and inventive and so musical as well. I find myself listening again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars talented jazz pianist May 24, 2013

My husband and I grew up listening to quality music from our parents era. Thankfully, this music overlapped into our era. I remember Vince Guaraldi music from Peanuts cartoon shows. We love his music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superior sound quality! August 2, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I have just about everything by Mr. Guaraldi you can buy and this recording has easily the best sound quality/mastering of all his work so far. If you're looking for a clean sounding collection of great Vince Guaraldi songs, this is a good place to end up. But honestly, the rest of it doesn't suck either. The man was very gifted.

I know Vince Guaraldi as the genius who wrote and played the infectious and charming Charlie Brown theme for the TV specials. :) This album is classy, well-played music that appeals to jazz fans or novices. My favorites include: "The Girl from Ipanema" is fun and breezy. I really enjoy the pensive, melacholy mood of "Moon River" and the blend of island and jazzy sounds in "Cast Your Fate to the Wind". "Fascinating Rhythm" is just plain fun with it's frenetic guitars and piano. "Since I Fell For You" transports you in time to the Mad Men era. "Greensleeves" may make you think of Christmas but you'll enjoy listening year-round to this playful arrangement's rich chords.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Vince Guaraldi February 10, 2014
By A. Webb
Format:Audio CD
I've revered Vince Guaraldi since the Sixties. A friend got me this from my Amazon wish list and I'm over the moon. You have to understand, while I like almost all kinds of music, my day-to-day preferences are for early music (like Renaissance and medieval), English folk music (yes, English), and an assortment of others, and not jazz in general. I have a healthy respect for the other jazz greats, but I don't crave to hear them like I do this man. There's something about Vince Guaraldi's music that transcends all other piano for me. Even the other musicians are touched with his magic, I love to focus on them as well. He left us too soon - oh, how I wish we'd had him for another couple of decades.
