Music Share: Cast Your Fate To The Wind

Vince Guaraldi became famous for writing the music for the Peanuts TV specials, especially the iconic theme song Linus & Lucy. A few years before hooking up with Charles Schultz and crew he had an unexpected hit with Cast Your Fate To The Wind, a B-Side. Try listening to the song without picturing the Peanuts characters walking from one location to another:

It's from the 1962 Vince Guaraldi Trio album Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus. There must be something about hearing music as a kid that embeds it into your psyche. Even Vince Guaraldi tracks that I haven't heard before sound familiar—like I've heard them all my life.

never heard the original before this, only the sounds orchestral version (which i love!). thanks for posting this for posterity!!
I've been a fan of Vince Guaraldi, aka the Vince Guaraldi Trio, for almost 44 years, and Cast Your Fate to the Wind sounds as fresh to me now as it did when I first heard it in 1966. It is still the best instrumental that I've ever heard, bar none, the ultimate ear candy!!!
