A CELEBRATION OF VINCE GUARALDI
Malcolm Boyd -speaker
Jazz quartet: Marino Bambino, Elissa Lala, Scott Page-Pagter and Johnnie Valentino.
In 1966, Vince Guaraldi and Rev. Malcolm Boyd caused a national sensation
with their extraordinary collaboration of music and spoken word performances
at San Francisco's legendary hungry i.
Vince Guaraldi was already enjoying great popularity with his composition "Cast Your Fate To The Wind" and his original jazz scores for the Peanuts cartoons, and had performed his inventive Jazz Mass at Grace Cathedral along with Boyd the year before.
Malcolm Boyd (the original "coffee house priest") was a best selling author, and an outspoken participant in the Civil Rights and anti-war movements. The New York Times called him a "modern day Luther", and Look magazine listed him as one of the ten most important Americans in 1970.
This Easter Sunday, April 12, their landmark collaboration will be reprised featuring recently discovered recordings of Vince Guaraldi blended with a live jazz quartet, fused with Malcolm Boyd's live performance of his most important writings.
The performance will be filmed for a new documentary entitled "Ralph J. Gleason Presents the Anatomy of Vince Guaraldi", which will premiere at this year's Monterey Jazz Festival.
