This San Francisco trio of the mid-1950s has a sparkling personality all its own with a refreshing lack of pretentiousness; an ebullient swing on the up tempos, and a subtle, unhackneyed approach to ballads such as "Sweet and Lonely" and/or jazz standards such as John Lewis' "Django." Vince Guaraldi and Eddie Duran had been longtime associates on the San Francisco music scene and their rapport is self-evident. Bassist Dean Reilly fit right in to help form a trio that is the epitome of "easy listening," without sounding like the King Cole Trio or any of the many other piano/guitar/bass trios so popular in the previous decade. "A jazzman with deep roots in his language, Vince projects clearly an individual musical personality - direct, emotional, inventive, tied-to-no-school." - Nat Hentoff, Down Beat

Reviewer: Miller
This is a nice selection of the VGT's work. Recorded in San Francisco in April of 1956, with Eddie Duran on Guitar and Dean Reilly on Bass. This Mono LP is one great time capsule of acoustic sounds. This is a clean uncomplicated set of beatiful Jazz compositions played with the touch of great artist capturing a moment in time now more than 50 years past.
