Vince Guaraldi - Jazz Impressions

Though largely ignored by critics, Vince Guaraldi developed one of the most distinctive, original, and joyous sounds in jazz piano. (Perhaps only Thelonious Monk is as instantly recognizable.)
However, Guaraldi did not really find his “voice” on the instrument until 1962's Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus. His prior recordings, Vince Guaraldi Trio, Flower Is a Lovesome Thing, and Jazz Impressions (which is really just a sampler of the two former works) are simply unexceptional West Coast jazz. The lightness of mood on these three early albums is further accentuated by the absence of a drummer.
Vince Guaraldi has often been labelled “easy listening.” For the most part, that characterization is unfair, and reflects the accessibility of his work rather than its artistic merit. On these first three albums, however, the characterization is very apt...

I recently discovered your blog, and I'm blown away. There is SO MUCH HISTORY here... Kudos, my friend. Amazing.

Is there any way you could re-up this album? Guaraldi is hands-down my favorite jazz artist, and I'm always delighted when I discover new stuff.

Thanks!

Don
