Many people got to know Vince Guaraldi through his 1963 Grammy®- winning song, "Cast Your Fate To The Wind," or via the group, Sounds Orchestral's top 10 cover of it two years later.
Lee Mendelson heard Guaraldi's version while working on a Peanuts documentary, and contacted Guaraldi, asking him to score the upcoming Peanuts Christmas special. It was a match made in television and musical history.
With songs like "Linus And Lucy" and "Christmas Time Is Here," the special a hit and for over five decades not a holiday season goes by without an airing of the television classic. So potent and successful was the Peanuts/Guaraldi combination that Guaraldi went on to score a total of 15 Peanuts television specials and the first feature film.
