Vince Guaraldi - Peanuts Portraits: The Classic Character Themes


  • £21.99

Available on LP for the very first time, the vivid musical cues that American jazz pianist and composer Vince Guaraldi wrote for the cast of Peanuts characters, adding new dimensions to beloved regulars like Peppermint Patty, Schroeder, Sally, and, of course, Charlie Brown.

Guaraldi's jazz themes created for the Peanuts TV specials, beginning in 1965, have become almost as well loved and iconic as the comic strips themselves. 

This collection focuses on some of the lesser-known and rare cues, and in addition to nine songs performed by Guaraldi, the album also includes two classic Peanuts tunes recorded by pianist George Winston. Eight of the selections on Peanuts Portraits (including Winston renditions of 'Linus And Lucy' and 'Masked Marvel') make their vinyl debut on this record.

  2. Sally’s Blues
  3. Blue Charlie Brown (version #2)
