  • Vince Guaraldi

    Vince Guaraldi was a jazz pianist best known for composing the scores to the Peanuts television specials in the mid-’60s. A San Francisco native, Guaraldi joined vibraphonist Cal Tjader’s trio in 1951 and, in addition to performing on several of the vibraphonist’s albums, performed with the group during its legendary late-night appearance at the Monterey Jazz Festival in 1958. After forming his own trio, Guaraldi’s first success came in 1962 with Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus, an album featuring interpretations of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Luiz Bonfa’s bossa-nova score to the 1959 Marcel Camus film. However, it was actually the album’s original tune, “Cast Your Fate to the Wind,” that wound up rising to the Top 20 of the pop charts and earning Guaraldi a Grammy for Best Original Jazz Composition. Whether he’s playing with Brazilian guitarist Bola Sete, Grace Cathedral’s 68-voice choir, or his own trio on Peanuts classics like “Linus and Lucy,” “Red Baron,” and “The Great Pumpkin Waltz,” Guaraldi is delightful on vinyl.
