Along with the PEANUTS comic strip, the Charlie Brown CBS television specials continue to enrich the lives of all who view them. Without a doubt, pianist Vince Guaraldi's score has been a vital part of that cartoon's success.
A BOY NAMED CHARLIE BROWN is classic West Coast cool jazz, undoubtedly some of the most famous music of its kind. After all, who doesn't know the "Charlie Brown Theme?" This soundtrack will bring back memories you may have of the television show, as well as your own recollections from childhood. It's also a good starting place for non-jazz fans to get acquainted with this art form. A BOY NAMED CHARLIE BROWN is very accessible music, even though the piano is charmingly out of tune; Guaraldi is no Bill Evans or George Shearing, but this music is well executed, and smartly composed. If you're at all a fan of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the gang, this album will bring a smile to your face. Highlights include "Oh, Good Grief," "Linus and Lucy" and the ever charming bossa nova tune "Pebble Beach."
Artist Overview
Vince Guaraldi, the blithe and swinging pianist who will forever be associated with a certain bald-headed cartoon character, paid his dues in the storied haunts of the 1950s jazz scene. Working as an intermission pianist for Art Tatum and a sideman for Cal Tjader, he honed the whimsical, buoyant style that would become his trademark. During a busy period of session work in the early '60s, a b-side of his called "Cast Your Fate to the Wind" was discovered by a local DJ, and became a Grammy-winning hit. It was at about this time that he scored the first Charlie Brown television special, which led to his writing the timeless and inventive theme for 1965's A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS, featuring his signature tune "Linus and Lucy." Fourteen original TV scores followed, as well as other successful albums, but the franchise ended in 1976 when Guaraldi died suddenly of a heart attack at the too-young age of 47.
