Vince GuaraldiCast Your Fate To The Wind – Jazz Impressions Of Black Orpheus ... LP
Fantasy, 1962. Very Good ... $9.99
A beautiful record of light, lyrical piano jazz – and one of the best-selling jazz albums ever on Fantasy Records! Vince Guaraldi started the set as a tribute to the film Black Orpheus – and some of the album features his nice renditions of Jobim/Bonfa tunes like "Manha De Carnaval" and "Samba De Orpheus". However, Guaraldi also managed to pen his own amazing track – "Cast Your Fate To The Wind" – a lyrical romping piano instrumental that went onto become a huge charting instrumental hit during the 60s. The track's been heard a million times over the years, but it's still pretty darn great – and it's surrounded in a nice set with other tunes that have the same feel – including "O Nosso Amour", "Alma-Ville", "Since I Fell For You", and "Moon River". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing.)

✨✧ Vince GuaraldiVince Guaraldi & The Conte Candoli All Stars ... LP
Crown, 1960. Very Good+ ... $19.99
An incredible record – and the kind of rare LA bop session that got totally lost because it was never packaged properly! Vince Guaraldi plays some incredibly soulful piano, in a manner that's very different than his Fantasy recordings – and he's playing here with a killer group of LA players who deliver some of their finest recorded work! No kidding – the group includes Conte Candoli, Buddy Collette, Leroy Vinnegar, and Stan Levey – all playing with a fantastically tight and incredibly soulful bop groove, of the sort you always hear them credited for, but which you can never find on any of their snoozy more famous records. Trust us, the session's a gem – and it's one of those you can put on and surprise your friends, and yourself! Tracks include "Muggin The Minor", "Mambo Diane", "Macedonia", and "Little David". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a split spine.)

Vince GuaraldiVince Guaraldi At Grace Cathedral ... LP
Fantasy, 1965. Very Good+ ... $8.99
One of the most ambitious recordings ever undertaken by Vince Guaraldi – a set recorded at San Francisco's Grace Cathedral, and one that augments Vince's usual trio format with a choir of voices – in a way that gives the whole album a wonderfully spiritual sound! The approach is a bit like some of the "jazz mass" albums of the 60s, but also has echoes of the Donald Byrd and Max Roach "jazz with voices" sessions – and alongside Vince's beautiful piano work, the use of the vocals sounds especially wonderful. Titles include "Agnus Dei", "Come Holy Ghost", "Nicene Creed", "Humbly I Adore Thee", and "Holy Communion Blues". And for some strange reason, the San Francisco Diocese is listed as the co-writer of all tunes – which leads us to wonder if they were shaking down Vince for cash! LP, Vinyl record album
(Maroon label pressing.)

Vince Guaraldi & Bola SeteLive At El Matador ... LP
Fantasy, 1966. Sealed ... $14.99
A hip little live date from the team of Vince Guaraldi and Bola Sete – one that's a bit heavier on Vince's piano than Bola's guitar – but in a way that's a-OK with us! There's a sweetly gliding sensibility to the whole set – that warm lyricism and subtle soul that Guaraldi always brought to his own 60s gems for Fantasy Records – a style made most famous by his work on the Peanuts cartoons at the time, but which comes off with an even deeper vibe here. There's a bit of rhythm backing behind the players – although that's also somewhat gentle too – and titles include long versions of "Favela" and "More", plus the "Black Orpheus Suite" – and the tracks "El Matador", "I'm A Loser", and "People". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed pressing – probably 70s, as there's no barcode. Cvoer has a cut corner, and another slightly bumped corner.)

✨✧ Vince Guaraldi TrioCharlie Brown Christmas ... LP
Fantasy, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An amazing record – one with a depth that goes way beyond its simple roots, and which has gone on to become one of the true Christmas classics of the 20th Century! Although a Christmas soundtrack, the album's more of a tapestry of sadness, longing, and loss – the best qualities that always emerge in true Christmas classics – underscoring the blue side of the season that's always lurking around corners from the happier moments. Vince Guaraldi penned this score back when he was a rising talent on the San Francisco scene – and in a way, it was almost his musical contribution to the cartoon that made it such a lasting favorite – even over and above the appeal of the famous animated characters. Most tunes are simple piano ones, but played with a phrasing that's beautifully timeless – and the few vocal numbers feature voices from the cartoon, singing softly with the music. Titles include the classic "Linus and Lucy" – plus "My Little Drum", "Christmas Is Coming", "Christmas Time Is Here", "Skating", and "Fur Elise". LP, Vinyl record album

Frank RosolinoFrank Rosolino Quintet ... LP
Mode, 1957. Very Good ... $29.99
One of the best albums on the rare Mode label – and a great quintet side by trombonist Frank Rosolino! 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

Cal TjaderCal Tjader (Fantasy 3253) ... LP
Fantasy, 1960. Very Good- ... $14.99
An early Cal Tjader album for Fantasy, featuring Cal's vibes set up in a piano and percussion mode – a bit like work by the George Shearing group, but with a hipper sound! The quartet's made up of Vince Guaraldi, Al Torres and Gene Wright, with 7 tracks in all: "Porgy & Bess Suite", "When Lights Are Low", "Our Blues", "That's All", "And Baby Makes Three", "Medley: Lover Man/Willow Weep For Me/Round About Midnight" and "Line For Lyons". LP, Vinyl record album
(Deep groove red vinyl pressing. Cover is nice, but has light wear.)

✨✧ Cal TjaderCal Tjader's Latin Concert ... LP
Fantasy, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not the sort of stodgy affair you might think from the "concert" in the title – and instead a relaxed, nicely-grooving little set – recorded by Cal Tjader in the very familiar territory of the Blackhawk night club in San Francisco! The recording quality is less live than other Tjader location recordings – less audience noise, or room feel – and instead a sound that's as crystal clear as any of Cal's great studio recordings from the time – served up with a warmth and glow that gets us right from the very first note! Tjader's vibes seem a bit harder-edged than usual – and the group's a quintet with Vince Guaraldi on piano, Al McKibbon on bass, Willie Bobo on timbales and drums, and Mongo Santamaria on congas. Titles include "Mi Guaguanco", "Cubano Chant", "Viva Cepeda", "A Young Love", "Tu Crees Que", and "Mood For Milt". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label 70s pressing.)
