Vince Guaraldi (jazz pianist) - Died February 6, 1976. Born July 17, 1928. Composed and performed all piano music for Peanuts specials until 1976.

Vince Guaraldi . . . probably the true origin for my love of jazz, since he wrote all the music for the Peanuts. Who didn't love those holiday specials? And, the skating song?! Man, we all have good memories to his music, right? But, he wrote a TON of non-Peanuts related music that was absolutely beautiful. Look him up, find his other stuff. You won't regret it.
