Star Song


 

Bola Sete with the Vince Guaraldi Trio – Star Song – from Jazz Casual – 1963

Jazz Casual was a show produced by Ralph J. Gleason, a man who went on to be as influential in pop and rock as he was in jazz. The program was shown nationally over National Educational Television (NET), the predecessor of PBS.

This episode seems to have the only video recordings currently available clearly showing the great Vince Guaraldi in action (Guaraldi also appered in the 1962 episode featuring blues singer Jimmy Witherspoon and saxophonist Ben Webster but is hardly shown in full on camera). With Fred Marshall on bass and Jerry Granelli on drums, this is the same trio that so much of North America knows and loves from A Charlie Brown Christmas.

In 1963 – the same year from which this clip comes – Guaraldi, Marshall, and Granelli were joined by legendary Brazilian guitarist Bola Sete to record Vince Guaraldi, Bola Sete and Friends. The tune performed in this clip, Star Song, appears on that album.

This is from when Procter & Gamble first introduced Jif. I do not know exactly when the kangaroo mascot disappeared but he was certainly gone by the very late 1960s as the label I remember as a small boy was very similar to the one seen today. In 2001, the Jif brand was purchased by the J.M. Smucker Company…not a bad pairing, eh?

Founded in 1918 — eight years before the road it sits upon was given its famous number — The Golden Spur Restaurant is the best such place remaining on what I consider to be "my" stretch of Route 66 which is anywhere from the Cajon Pass out to Monrovia. » Click to continue »
