Though his bebop lines were enjoyable, he lacked the fire of Hampton Hawes or the mystery of Jimmy Rowles. In short order, the song won a Grammy for Best Original Jazz Composition and was covered by many non-jazz artists.
When the budding producer Lee Mendelson searched for composer for a project about Charles Schulz and Charlie Brown, Guaraldi, a fellow Bay Area talent, seemed like an obvious choice. The bass still has that sustained bowed note, which is a genius bit of arranging. Over the ostinato is a very old trick indeed: horn fifths, the same sequence of dyads used by European composers for hundreds of years to suggest hunting in the open air.
In classic American fashion, Guaraldi steals that Old Country material and marries it to African-influenced rhythm in the bottom.

Probably even you, how often have you ignored a cold or what you thought was a mild case of flu? Oh, I know! Then too, going back and reviving things is something we take for granted today.
LPs and albums released back in the s, particularly by smaller labels like Fantasy , it was kind of like TV shows before the advent of VHS. Nobody thought that people were gonna hang on to these things for another half century. We live in such a musical paradise these days where you can get access to things like, well, vintage Guaraldi stuff continues to pop up. It was only a couple of years ago that a double-CD set of a vintage Woody Herman and Thundering Herd performance was released and that group included Guaraldi in the personnel.
We never know what might still pop up. I was under the impression that although Guaraldi had worked many times with female vocalists, that he had never recorded with one. I discovered that Fantasy had released a 45 single with Guaraldi backing a singer named Ella Jamerson.

The only way to hear that is to do some digging and find a copy of the At the point in time that Mendelson decided he wanted to do a documentary about Charles Schultz he knew that he wanted to include some animation and he wanted to work with Bill Melendez who had animated Peanuts for a series of TV commercials promoting Ford automobiles in the early s. Anyway, Mendelson also knew that he wanted a jazz score, which was rather unusual for that point in that time.
Mendelson wanted real, straight ahead jazz, and he knew a couple of people; he contacted Dave Brubeck, who turned him down, he contacted Cal Tjader, who turned him down, both pleaded busy schedules. As soon as he got off the bridge and could find a payphone, decades before cell phones, he got in touch with Fantasy , who put him in touch with Guaraldi. They got together, Vince accepted the assignment and went home and went into the tank. So Guaraldi wrote a bunch more themes, and laid down a soundtrack for this documentary special that Mendleson decided he was going to call A Boy Named Charlie Brown , and he shopped it around to the networks, and in true Charlie Brown fashion, nobody bought it.
It never aired on TV. The finale of the story is that a bit later after having finally given up trying to shop the documentary Mendelson got a call from somebody affiliated with Coca-Cola who had seen and remembered the documentary —Coca-Cola was interested in a holiday special and asked would Mendelson be able to deliver a Peanuts Christmas Special, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Everybody wanted to play that. Guaraldi was right there at the beginning.
