5.0 out of 5 stars Vince Guaraldi at his best! November 30, 1998
Format:Audio CD
The San Francisco-based piano legend truly hit a high note with this album.
The Latin Side of... may not include his biggest hit "Cast Your Fate to the Wind," but in my humble opinion, this album ranks higher.
You may recognize some of the tracks (like Corcovado) from albums by other musical greats like Stan Getz and Miles Davis, but Guaraldi's style and meter shine new light, and tempos, on old favorites.
Oh, when you buy this album, make sure that you get "From All Sides." The two never leave my CD changer and compliment each other wonderfully!

Vince Guaraldi possessed a special talent for making beautiful music on the piano; and just one listen to this awesome CD proves it. Sure, it may not be as complete as I would have liked; but it's still five stars all the way!

The CD track set begins with a cover of Henry Mancini's "Mr. Lucky." The piano never sounded better when Vince played it; and the strings bolster the natural beauty of this number. I love that percussion, too! I predict that you will enjoy "Mr. Lucky" very much. "What Kind Of Fool Am I?" features a sublime arrangement for Vince's piano playing; and the percussion fits perfectly for this beautiful number. Wow, how Vince Guaraldi could play that piano!

"Work Sing" gets an awesome Latin beat to infuse it with so much more energy than I've ever heard in this piece! Vince delivers this piano arrangement without a superfluous note; and the percussion works wonders for "Work Song." I also like the subtle and very quick tempo changes on "Work Song." "Treat Street" really jams as Vince plays the piano perfectly. The percussion shines as it does throughout this CD; and "Treat Street" will make you want to jump and dance wherever you are! SMILE Moreover, "Dor Que Faz Doer" features a pretty fine arrangement for the strings as Vince plays piano and the percussion enhances the number greatly. I like the subtle tempo and key changes on "Dor Que Faz Doer;" and none of these fine musicians ever misses a beat. Great!

The CD ends with the stunning "Brasilia." This hauntingly beautiful number showcases Vince's ingenuity and creativity at piano playing with a string arrangement that works well while still leaving Vince's piano playing front and center. The percussion helps "Brasilia" along at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Vince Guaraldi Classic! July 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD
"The Latin Side..." has one key weakness - cheesy '60s string arrangements. However, it still remains one of Guaraldi's best non-"Peanuts" works. "Work Song" and "Treat Street," in particular, are irresistably funky, and the hilarious album cover is one of the best of its time. Don't pass this one by!

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh Yeah... October 14, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Vince Guaraldi is one of my all time favorites, and this CD is what I would personally call "Saturday morning cleaning music" only meaning it is light, gets your feet to moving...takes your cares away and you can just be-bop around the house to it.
Anyone who likes the Latin beat will certainly enjoy this CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Latin Piano June 11, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Lovely piano with latin rythmes from the mid sixties.
Soft, relaxed moods brought around by the reunion of dinner jazz and bossa nova.
A very nice CD indeed.
