Vince Guaraldi…Sings

In terms of Guaraldi's varied career I've always viewed the Peanuts scores as a peek into the Guaraldi rabbit hole. As the televised specials moved into the late sixties and early seventies, so did the music. Guaraldi, a bay area bohemian of the old school, infused layers of funk, soul, r&b and all manner of groove into the latter specials. His underused vocals reeked of a smoldering blue cool that can't be faked. The below two tracks are culled from volume one of the high recommended compilation Lost Cues From The Charlie Brown Television Specials . . .
