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."
