The late pianist Vince Guaraldi was a musician of uncommon resourcefulness. One of the few jazz artists to have an AM hit ("Cast Your Fate To The Wind"), he also had a genuine feel for bossa nova at the time of its peak popularity in this country. Witness his JAZZ IMPRESSIONS OF BLACK ORPHEUS, from which three of these GREATEST HITS are taken. Among the special pleasures of this compilation are the several tracks featuring masterful Brazilian guitarist Bola Sete. Guaraldi's gorgeous touch and uncluttered voicings make for a natural blend with Sete's acoustic rhythms.
Guaraldi is the commercial jazz pianist of choice, over the perhaps more limited Ramsey Lewis and Ahmad Jamal. He could even cover a Beatles tune like "I'm a Loser" without cheapening it--or himself--in the process. The pianist's greatest achievement, however, was composing and playing the scores for the animated CHARLIE BROWN television specials. The last three tracks on this collection are taken from these soundtracks and retain the freshness and simplicity that made Guaraldi's kind of jazz such an essential contribution to the original productions.
