Larry Vuckovich - Vince Guaraldi Tribute at Bach Dancing & Dynamite Society at the Douglas Beach House
Larry Vuckovich was Vince Guaraldi's only student and played in Vince's two-piano quintet, Powder Keg. This tribute showcases an authentic musical portrait of the Bay Area native and internationally acclaimed pianist.. Larry will premier Vince's original composition – a beautiful previously unrecorded jazz waltz and perform Vince's famous duets with Bola Sete. The program will include Vince Guaraldi's favorite musical format: his repertoire of swinging jazz, Latin/Brazilian, as well as some of his pop hits including "Cast Your Fate To The Wind", "Charlie Brown Christmas Tune", and a selection from "Peanuts", which are all swinging jazz pieces..
The stellar cast of musicians includes guitarist Josh Workman, who captures the excitement of Vince’s collaborations with Brazilian guitarist Bola Sete; bassist Seward McCain, who worked in Vince’s combos, including the two-piano quintet, Powder Keg, with Larry as second pianist; five-time Grammy-nominated Latin percussionist John Santos; and first-call drummer on both coasts, Akira Tana.
