The definitive Vince Guaraldi – but with some unreleased material too!

Vince GuaraldiPeanuts Greatest Hits ... LP
Fantasy, 1960s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
Over the years, we've come to realize that the best thing about the Peanuts cartoons isn't the actions of Charlie Brown and Lucy, but the wonderful music from Vince Guaraldi – perhaps the one aspect of the cartoons that's kept on giving over the years, and which we can proudly carry into adulthood! Vince's music is sublime – often simple, but groovy – a mix of rhythmic vamps and more lyrical passages that perfectly underscore the melancholy that graced the characters of Charles Schultz, and which perhaps defines them even better than the clunky stories or voiceovers on the screen. This set features all the best numbers from the glory days of those cartoons – mostly holiday numbers, but some other gems too – titles that include "Skating", "Little Birdie", "Baseball Theme", "Linus & Lucy", "Happiness Is", "Oh Good Grief", "Christmas Is Coming", "Great Pumpkin Waltz", "Thanksgiving Theme", and both vocal and instrumental versions of "Christmas Time Is Here".

Vince Guaraldi & Bola SeteFrom All Sides ... LP
Fantasy, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
One of the wonderful 60s collaborations between San Francisco pianist Vince Guaraldi and Brazilian guitarist Bola Sete – a pair who were easily one of America's best contributions to the bossa at the time! Yet the sound here isn't strictly bossa nova overall – thanks to Sete's wider range of influences on the guitar, which often bring in some samba elements – or some more personal lyrical moments that sound great next to Guaraldi's free-thinking work on piano. The rest of the group features either Fred Marshall or Monty Budwig on bass, or Jerry Granelli or Nick Martinez on drums. Titles include "Little Fishes", "Choro", "Ginza", "Menino Pequeno Da Bateria", and a nice take on "Girl From Ipanema". LP, Vinyl record album

Vince Guaraldi TrioCharlie Brown's Holiday Hits ... LP
Fantasy, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
The music of Vince Guaraldi and Peanuts isn't just for Christmas – although Vince racked up plenty of fame over the years for his Christmas-themed tunes – and this collection's a great reminder that the Guaraldi genius graced a whole host of different Charlie Brown cartoons in the 60s and 70s – all with results that are completely sublime! The music here is from a host of different small combos, used in a number of different Holiday-themed cartoons over the years – and Vince plays piano with accompaniment that shifts from track to track, and includes a bit of trumpet from Tom Harrell, guitar from Eddie Duran, and timbales from Benny Velarde. The album may well be worth it alone for the classic "Joe Cool" – a tune that may well be our favorite from the Peanuts cartoons – and but the set includes lots of other greatness, with titles that include "Linus & Lucy", "Thanksgiving Theme", "Great Pumpkin Waltz", "Schroeder", "Charlie's Blues", "Charlie Brown Theme", "Surfin Snoopy", "Heartburn Waltz", and "Track Meet".

Vince Guaraldi/Frank RosolinoFrank Rosolino Quintet ... LP
Mode/Premier, 1957. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A set issued under the name of Vince Guaraldi in this second pressing on the Premier label – even though it was recorded under the leadership of trombonist Frank Rosolino – who's also pictured on the cover! The group here features Vince Guaraldi on piano, Richie Kamuca on tenor, Monty Budwig on bass, and Stan Levy on drums – and the sound's a lot harder than you'd expect from the combo. Guraldi's especially rough-edged – with a soulful sound that's quite different than his 60s recordings, one that sounds great next to Rosolino's horn. Titles include "Tuffy", "Fine Shape", "Cherry", "Let's Make It", "Fallout", "Thou Swell", "How Long Has This Been Going On" and "They Say". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a few small bits of tape on the corners.)

✨✧ Brew MooreBrew Moore ... LP
Fantasy, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful set of tracks from the San Francisco scene of the 50s! Moore is a heck of a tenor player, and this second album has him playing in tandem with saxophonist Harold Wylie, the co-leader of Moore's regular combo in San Francisco. The two-tenor frontline works nicely together, and backing's by the rhythm trio that completes the Moore/Wylie combo. One track – "Dues Blues" – features a pickup groove with Cal Tjader and Vince Guaraldi – and other tracks include "Pat's Batch", "Marna Moves", and "Edison's Lamp". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red vinyl pressing. Cover has a split spine, mostly split top seam, and promo stamps on back.)

✨✧ Keith JarrettSomewhere Before (Jazzlore pressing) ... LP
Vortex/Atlantic, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful illustration of the inherent sense of beauty in Keith Jarrett's early work – an approach to piano that was simple, straightforward, and marked by a ringing sense of tone that's evident in the very first note of the set! Jarrett here isn't trying to break any rules in jazz piano, nor is he trying to go out of his way to make the world known of his presence – and instead, he's got a simple, subtle approach to the keys that's filled with tenderness and gentle tones – but not in a way that's hokey or overly sentimental. There's certainly echoes here of 60s work by Steve Kuhn, and of earlier records by Vince Guaraldi – but Jarrett also hints at a bold power underneath that seems likely to break out at every turn. The album's a live recording, with Charlie Haden on bass and Paul Motian on drums – and titles include "A Moment For Tears", "Pout's Over", "My Back Pages", "Pretty Ballad", "Moving Soon", "Old Rag", and "Dedicated To You".

✨✧ Cal TjaderLos Ritmos Calientes (Ritmo Caliente/Mas Ritmo Caliente) ... LP
Fantasy, 1955/1957. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A 2-in-1 Latin jazz spectacular from the mighty Cal Tjader! First up is the album Ritmo Caliente – one of Tjader's first Latin-tinged sessions for Fantasy Records – and a really wonderful batch of tracks recorded with a shifting array of very hip players! In addition to Cal's vibes, and expected Latin percussion – handled by Armando Peraza on congas and bongos – the set also features some totally slamming piano work from Eddie Cano, Manuel Duran, and Richard Wyands – each of whom get a chance at the keys on the set, really helping to bring in a range of different colors and tones. An added bonus is Jerome Richardson on flute – who plays on about half of the album's tracks – in that soulfully snaking way he virtually owned back in the 50s. Tracks are short, and filled with plenty of energy – and titles include "Ritmo Caliente", "Mambo Moderno", "Alegres Timbales", "Buhutu (Nanigo 6/8)", "Cubano Chant", "Goza", "Lamento De Hodi", "Mueve La Cintura", and "Afro Corolombo". On Mas Ritmo Caliente, Cal Tjader's working in a smoking Latin vibe throughout – and has managed to get some great extra help in his efforts! The album was mostly recorded in Chicago and New York, and these different locals seem to give the record a slightly different flavor than some of Tjader's other west coast dates from the 50s – a slightly harder Latin groove, thanks to the presence of players like Jose Chombo Silva on tenor sax, Gerald Sanfino on flute and alto, Bobby Rodriguez on bass, Mongo Santamaria on congas, Willie Bobo on timbales, and Luis Kant on percussion. Vince Guaraldi's on piano on all tracks – bringing in a nice dose of warmth next to Cal's vibes – and titles include "Mongorama", "Ritmo Africano", "Ritmo Rumba", "Tumbao", "Perdido", and "Cuco On Timbales".
