I am a fan of classic Jazz, think Basie, Ella and Ellington, and Be-Bop Jazz, think Thelonius Monk and early Miles Davis, but, I don't even pretend to be a true Jazz fan. I detest all of the atonal crap that sometimes passes for Jazz and I actively hate everything I've ever heard by Keith Jarrett. I have never heard of Vince, but, if you read my post carefully, I said that his version was probably the original, which you confirm. Thanks for the information.

The Vince Guaraldi version is the original. He wrote it! It was 1963. That is the version that is on all the American instrumental compialation CD's. It was a jazz song by a jazz musician. I just sampled the Sound Orchestral version and that was not the radio song in Los Angeles. Their version has a orchestra behind it. The Sounds Orchestral version did go top 10 on the pop chart here in the U.S., but I gotta tell you, I have never heard the orchestra version on Los Angeles pop radio and that song was played a lot. The Guaraldi version is what is put on 60's instrumental compialations.

I have been listening to nothing but jazz stations here in Los Angeles for the last three weeks, and vince Guaraldi tunes are a staple. You may know Vince better by what he is really famous for...doing all the music for the early Peanuts TV shows. He is the author of the music. He also did jazz albums along the line of the Peanuts films. Not my favorites, but he jumped on a good thing. Jazz albums are not a big seller back then and now.

I also mentioned that tune before and so have others, but it doesn't matter. It is a great mood evoking tune in it's jazz state.

Cast Your Fate To The Wind --- Vince Guaraldi Trio

The version I remember was by Sounds Orchestral from 1965. That one must have been a cover, but I don't remember Vince Guaraldi's version. Maybe it was from before my time.

John,
RE: probably heard of Janis Martin

I have heard of Janis before your post. Thanks for the recommendation though. The post of Zola was the first I'd seen of her and I was instantly interested in er music. She does a lot of differing post modern compositions and never fails to keep fans guessing whats next

White Boy,
Thanks for the clips. I never heard of Zola Moon before. She's awesome. If you like Rockabilly, you've probably heard of Janis Martin. She was called the female Elvis.

Hi, Joe I really like Vanilla Fudge or The Vanilla Fudge as real fans have called them. I am a 2nd generation fan, but I have always liked the band since I heard them in the mid 70's or thereabouts. Thank goodness I grew up in NY. because I heard them a lot on radio. I still think the band was highly underrated and more appreciated on the east coast. Their cover tunes were as good as the original versions to me, in fact some tunes surpassed the originals to me. Case in point their version of You Keep Me Hangin On improved on The Supremes version. I think their version was more dramatic than the Supremes version and I love the lead guitar riffs on it as well.

Timothy,

I have the import CD of The Johnny Burnette Trio: Rockabilly Boogie. I have to partially agree with you about "Train" but I also feel the same way about "Rockabilly Boogie." The YouTube cut is quite a racy video for that period. Since I really enjoyed it and its high energy level, I have also included a link to Burnette's "Boogie".

A contemporary of Burnette is Rockabilly phenomena Sonny Burgess who recorded another genre straddling tune, "Movin' On Over". I have also included a link to that video.

Most musicoholics are familiar with the "Carl Perkins & Friends - Blue Suede Shoes - A Rockabilly Session (Live)" which featured Perkins and other "rock royalty" having fun with rockabilly in 1986. This is one of my favorite videos I believe to be timeless.

More postmodern interpretations of Rock-a-Billy continue today. One of my favorite performers in that genre is Zola Moon. I have also included links to her performance of her tune "Rockabilly Billie". You must be taking the dirt nap if these tunes don't move you.

Dreamin' --- Johnny Burnette

In the 1950's, before he became a solo star, Johnny, along with his brother Dorsey Burnette and guitarist Paul Burlison formed a band called The Rock and Roll Trio. They made a recording that is, quite simply the greatest Rockabilly recording ever made. Everyone who claims to love Rock should check out "Train Kept A Rollin'" on YouTube. It was later credited to Johnny Burnette's Rock and Roll Trio after he became a hit artist.
