RARE/2HAND VINYL LP ON GRP 1989.

GRP 9596-1 made in Germany with text inner sleeve. Vinyl NM. Cover NM.

This is GRP's celebration of Charlie Brown and The Peanuts 40th anniversary. It's aimed at the jazz market, not necessarily the children's market.The 40th anniversary of the Charlie Brown comic strip is celebrated on this 1987 CD by performances of songs used on the cartoon series (most of which were originally composed by Vince Guaraldi). A variety of artists participated in the project including David Benoit, B.B. King (singing "Joe Cool"), Dave Grusin, Chick Corea ("The Great Pumpkin Waltz"), Joe Williams, Gerry Mulligan, Lee Ritenour, Patti Austin and even Kenny G ("Breadline Blues") and Dave Brubeck ("Benjamin"). The results are pleasing if lightweight.
