Nine whole years before Snoopy! I keep thinking I need to get my hands on some of their albums. I know I'll enjoy them. I'd be happy to hear any recommendations.

Cast your fate to Charlie Brown.

And here I always thought Vince would look just like Schroeder.

At the time "Cast You Fate To The Wind" and the Charlie Brown stuff came out, he was not highly regarded by jazz aficionados. If the term had existed then, his music would have been called "lite jazz".

I heard he was basically a San Francisco journeyman jazz musician who get picked up by the producer of the Charle Brown Xmas special. He was a hit, but a few years later, he was right back where he was when he got spotted - weekend gigs, lotsa driving, etc etc
