George Winston revisits his musical hero for a second time on LOVE WILL COME: THE MUSIC OF VINCE GUARALDI, VOL. 2, a wide-ranging collection of Guaraldi interpretations that follows up the 1996 album LINUS & LUCY: THE MUSIC OF VINCE GUARALDI. Jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi (1928-1976) is beloved by generations of music fans for his scores to Charlie Brown television specials.
Many of the songs on Winston's new album are from the Charlie Brown episodes, including "Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown," "Love Will Come," "Woodstock," and several others. The album also features Guaraldi compositions from his jazz albums. Click here to read a great 1981 article on Vince by Bob Doerschuk for Keyboard Magazine.
