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 with deep groove.)

Vince GuaraldiOh Good Grief! (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner/Omnivore, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... On July 6, 2018
Very groovy stuff! This is the music that was used in the 60s Peanuts cartoons – made famous during the same stretch through its use in goofy Dolly Madison commercials! The album's way better than any of the Peanuts stuff that was on Fantasy, as Vince plays electric harpsichord on a number of cuts, and gets some electric guitar backing by Eddie Duran – for a very groovy sound! Tracks include the classic "Linus & Lucy", plus "Red Baron", "Peppermint Patty", "Great Pumpkin Waltz", and "Rain Rain Go Away". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Vince Guaraldi & Bola SeteVince Guaraldi, Bola Sete, & Friends ... LP
Fantasy, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest albums ever from the pair of Vince Guaraldi and Bola Sete – a set of longer-than-usual tunes that really lets both players open up nicely! The setting is quite spare – just bass and drums behind Bola's guitar and Vince's piano – although there's a bossa/samba vibe to the work, there's also a more fluid sort of groove too – that lightly lyrical soul that always showed up in Guaraldi's own work of the 60s. The whole thing's great – and titles include "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Mambossa", "Moon Rays", and "Casaba". LP, Vinyl record album
(60s blue label pressing, in nice shape! Top cover seam has some splitting, but the rest is nice.)

Dick HymanDick Hyman Swings Music From Whoop-Up ... LP
MGM, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A pretty great early album from Dick Hyman – done with a loose, flowing style that has a surprising amount of groove – somewhere between the acoustic trio work of Pete Jolly and Vince Guaraldi! LP, Vinyl record album

Cal TjaderCal Tjader (Fantasy 3313) ... LP
Fantasy, 1960. Very Good ... $11.99
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
(Red vinyl pressing. Cover has a center split on the spine and bottom seam.)

✨✧ Rod McKuenBoy Named Charlie Brown ... LP
Stanyan, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly weird and wonderful little record – one that features Rod McKuen's music for the film A Boy Named Charlie Brown, plus a few other tracks as well – all done in that slightly-broken style of Rod's we love so much! The aging poet McKuen might have seemed a strange choice to use for any sort of Peanuts film, but his raspy take on the title tune is really wonderful – almost a version of Charlie Brown that's an older alcoholic who's smoked most of his life – but still trying to sound slightly upbeat! This approach also follows on some of Rod's vocal work on a few tunes for the film Natalie with Henry Mancini – and even his instrumental work here is nice, with kind of a blue-tinged take on the territory of Vince Guaraldi. Titles include vocal numbers "Failure Face", "We", "Champion Charlie Brown", "A Boy Named Charlie Brown", and "Natalie" – plus instrumental tracks "Something For Snoopy", "I'll Catch The Sun", "Jean", and "Joanna" – as well as instrumentals of a few Charlie Brown tracks too. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Cal TjaderCal Tjader/Stan Getz Sextet ... LP
Fantasy, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer record from the late 50s – and one that hints at all the sides Stan Getz would take in later years – his bossa sessions, his vibes quartet with Gary Burton, and the playful lyricism of his recordings with Chick Corea! The set was recorded in San Francisco, when Stan had that great bassist Scott LaFaro in his group, and when he was brought into the studio by Fantasy to meet with local talents like Cal Tjader, Eddie Duran, and Vince Guaraldi. Billy Higgins is also added on drums, giving the set a lively songlike sound that's just great. The group works incredibly well together, and it's a shame they only really gelled for this rare non-Verve session. Titles include "Big Bear", "Crow's Nest", and "Ginza Samba". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red vinyl pressing – nice and heavy! Cover is great!)

✨✧ Dharma TrioSnoopy's Time ... LP
Souffle Continu (France), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Snoopy's in the title, but the music here is quite far from the Peanuts jazz of Vince Guaraldi – given that the Dharma combo were one of the most on-fire avant combos of the French scene in the 70s! The group here is a trio, not their usual quintet formation – a lineup that really gives a lot of space to pianist Patricio Villarroel, who's working with an electric version of his instrument that has lots of sharp tones and edges – almost like one of those keyboards you might have heard Sun Ra using at the time! The tracks move effortlessly from structure to freedom – with wonderful work from Michel Gladieux on bass and Jacques Mahieux on drums – while Villarroel finds a way to make his instrument as tuneful as it is noisy – sometimes hitting moments of dark beauty that almost remind us of the Model Shop soundtrack. Titles include "Gloglou's Mood"," Enafrito", "End Starting", "Minton's Memory", and "Leo Smirglub Von Bischmouck". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful reissue – heavy vinyl, with booklet of notes!)

✨✧ Conte CandoliConte Candoli Quartet ... LP
Mode, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
Arguably one of the best records cut for the short-lived Mode label in the late 50s – and easily one of the best from trumpeter Conte Candoli too! For the session, Conte front a quartet with Vince Guaraldi on piano, Monty Budwig on bass, and Stan Levey on drums – and Guaraldi's piano style's got a heck of a lot more soul than you'd expect, a detail that brings a nice depth to a session that might have been otherwise lightweight – and which comes off with the same strength overall as the pair's outing from the same time for the Crown label. Candoli seems to play about half the tracks with a mute, but still in a style that's more open and fluid than much of his other work from the time – and titles include "Tara Ferma", "Diane", "Mambo Blues", "Mediolistic", and "Walkie Talkie". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – nice and heavy, clean, and with deep groove. Cover has some wear, with some of the back paste-on peeling at the spine.)
