This CD reissue under the OJC imprint brings back the first full session led by pianist Vince Guaraldi. Teamed up with the fine guitarist Eddie Duran and bassist Dean Reilly, Guaraldi swings lightly and with subtle creativity on two group originals and eight standards, including "Django," "Chelsea Bridge," "Fascinating Rhythm," and "The Lady's in Love with You." Tasteful music. ~ Scott Yanow
