The popularity of "Cast Your Fate to the Wind" (from the album Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus, OJC-437) woke a lot of jazz fans up to the talents of San Francisco pianist Vince Guaraldi. This impeccable program of piano music was the follow-up to his hit. Guaraldi displays his crisp and quite personal touch on all nine tracks, as well as an uncommon taste for triple meter in several places (including the standard "On Green Dolphin Street"). He also gives further evidence that he was among the first American musicians to feel the new music of Brazil in an organic manner. His inclusion of compositions by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Carlos Lyra, and Oscar Castro-Neves is enhanced by the addition of guitarist Eddie Duran and percussionist Benny Velarde to the working Guaraldi trio, and anticipates the music the pianist would soon be creating in collaboration with Brazilian guitarist Bola Sete.
