2012 release. Out of print. One copy left.
Reissue featuring the high-fidelity SHM-SACD format (fully compatible with standard SACD player, but it does not play on standard CD players).
San Francisco native and jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi came of age in the North Beach beatnik scene. The famously mustachioed icon would go on to win a Grammy, enjoy copious TV and radio air time, and compose a modern jazz soundtrack for the Eucharist before skyrocketing to popular fame as the composer behind Charlie Brown's Schroeder. But it's the soundtrack he wrote to Charles Schulz's animated universe that would forever define his career.
While it's certainly possible the composer could have emerged from the dominant shadow of his three Peanuts albums — A Boy Named Charlie Brown, A Charlie Brown Christmas and Oh, Good Grief! — Guaraldi died prematurely of a heart attack at age 47 while breaking between sets in a Menlo Park motel room. Guaraldi's compositions, and "Linus and Lucy" in particular, have been embraced not only by Peanuts fans but by jazz peers and proteges including George Winston, Wynton Marsalis, Dave Brubeck, David Benoit
