Background: Released in 1964, Jazz Impressions Of “A Boy Named Charlie Brown was the sixth album by Vince Guaraldi.
The album was intended to serve as the soundtrack to a documentary television special that never actually appeared on air.
Originally titled Jazz Impressions of a Boy Named Charlie Brown, this is an important album not only because it is Guaraldi’s first Peanuts soundtrack, but also because the music heard here probably introduced millions of kids (and their parents) to jazz from the mid-’60s onward. Actually, this music is the score for a documentary on the Peanuts phenomenon called A Boy Named Charlie Brown, which ran before the first Peanuts specials per se appeared on the CBS network. The most remarkable thing, besides the high quality of Guaraldi’s whimsically swinging tunes, is that he did not compromise his art one iota for the cartoon world; indeed, he sounds even more engaged, inventive, and lighthearted in his piano work here than ever.
