Vast audiences were first introduced to jazz through a cartoon special about Charlie Brown's uneasy relationship with Christmas…
And many more were attracted by the sound of the early cross-over hit, Cast Your Fate To The Wind
It's fair to say that composer/pianist Vince Guaraldi
helped shape the landscape of popular jazz, bringing generations along with him to appreciate and further explore the music.
If you are a reader of All About Jazz
(and we know that you are), you're also active in this on-going celebration of jazz in all its forms. And we want to return the love right back at you—Guaraldi-style!
From now until Sunday, December 18th, All About Jazz
has arranged for an exclusive opportunity
to enjoy Vince through the award-winning feature documentary The Anatomy of Vince Guaraldi
on DVD and online streaming, with an accompanying production booklet, and a Bonus DVD collection of special material.
Oh, and this includes your name on-screen as a thank you" in the credits!
What's in the movie? Unreleased footage of Guaraldi in the studio and in performance, plus unreleased Vince recordings scoring the on-screen participation of Dave Brubeck
, Dick Gregory, John Handy, Jon Hendricks
, Jerry Granelli
, George Winston
, Eddie Duran
, Ashley Kahn
, Robben Ford
, David Benoit
… well, the list goes on.
The Bonus DVD? Some of the more intimate moments with Brubeck and the others, plus longer musical sequences of Vince that just didn’t fit. (It’s a one-time-only collection)
