For Sunday: the Vince Guaraldi Trio tell you to “Cast Your Fate to the Wind”

Vince Guaraldi, one of the leading figures in the 1960s San Francisco jazz movement, was chosen by the 1960s Charlie Brown animators to write music for their cartoons.

You know “Linus and Lucy”: it’s a classic. You also probably know some of his other music.

But this is a lovely pre-Peanuts piece. It takes me back to my childhood when I hear it.  It won the Grammy for Best Original Jazz Composition in 1963. It’s gentle and winsome and very freeing.
