Background:  Known by the titles Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus as well as Cast Your Fate to the Wind, this 1962 album was the fourth album by Vince Guaraldi.

The title track reached #22 on the U.S. singles charts in 1962. gave Cast Your Fate to the Wind a 5 star review:

Here is Vince Guaraldi’s breakthrough album — musically, commercially, in every which way. After numerous records as a leader or sideman, for the first time a recognizable Guaraldi piano style emerges, with whimsical phrasing all his own, a madly swinging right hand and occasional boogie-influenced left hand, and a distinctive, throat-catching, melodic improvisational gift. …The whole album evokes the ambience of San Francisco’s jazz life in the 1960s as few others do — and such is this record’s appeal that even non-jazz and non-Latin music people have been grooving to this music ever since it came out.
