Format: Audio CD
San Francisco jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi would have been remembered in the popular music conscience for his 1962 hit "Cast Your Fate to the Wind," had he not redefined his legacy three years later with the soundtrack to A Charlie Brown Christmas. The animated special's annual broadcast turned Guaraldi's score, particularly the instrumental "Linus and Lucy," into an indelible musical signature. The two bouts of popular acclaim obscured the rest of Guaraldi's career, which began in the 1950s backing Cal Tjader, blossomed into his own trio and first struck pay dirt with his tribute, Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus. It was from this latter album that the Guaraldi original "Cast Your Fate to the Wind" sprung onto the airwaves as the B-side of his cover of Luiz Bonfa's "Samba de Orfeu." Though the latter isn't included here, another of the film's themes, "Manha de Carnaval," shows off Guaraldi's interest in Latin rhythms, as well as the contemplative side of his playing.

Brazillian music played an on-going role in Guaraldi's repertoire, as he covered the bossa nova "Outra Vez," and collaborated with guitarist Bola Sete on the gentle "Star Song," the rush-hour "Ginza" and a live recording of "El Matador." The latter shows how easily Guaraldi transitioned back and forth from straight to swing time, much as he does in "Linus and Lucy," his left hand beating out boogie-woogie as his right hand picks out melodies.

My first appreciation for jazz came from listening to Vince's music in those wonderful animated classics.
Every time I here his piano, distinctive like no other, those characters come to life once again. But Guaraldi's other works stand on their own in the: "Very Best of Vince Guaraldi". Weather you are just beginning to explore the genre or rounding out your own extensive collection, I recommend this artist for everyone. : )

Absolutely wonderful! It's the perfect type of easy to listen to piano jazz. My 8 year old loves it, too!

What's not to like about the music written for the Charlie Brown specials? Ok, the CD is not entirely made up of Peanuts music. The reason I bought the CD is for the piece called Cast Your Fate to the Wind, which has always been a favorite. Definitely music to relax to.

One definitely hears the Peanuts music here. The same style appears in multiple songs. Worth a listen when in a large music rotation.
