Linus and Lucy: The Music of Vince Guaraldi is the tenth album of pianist George Winston. It features covers of songs composed by jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi, including some written for the Peanuts animations.
结合Vince Guaraldi的异想天开而又优雅的作曲和George Winston成熟严谨的演奏, Linus & Lucy: The Music of Vince Guaraldi这张专辑似乎是作曲与表演最佳组合. 在这张专辑的大部分中, George Winston趋于淡化Vince Guaraldi的活泼的风格, 在曲目"Skating", "Young Man's Fancy"选择柔和的处理, 但是却使得"The Great Pumpkin Waltz", "Treat Street"听起来显得有点筋疲力竭的. 然而, 活泼演绎的"The Masked Marvel," "You're in Love, Charlie Brown" , "Peppermint Patty" 以及"Eight Five Five"等曲目不仅弥补了偶然的不足, 突出了钢琴演奏大师Winston的演奏. 虽然这不一定是个最好的Vince Guaraldi的选集, 但以George Winston的独特的风格, 使这张专辑成为90年代最优秀的New Age(新世纪)风格的专辑之一.
While Vince Guaraldi's piano playing and composing have had a big influence on George Winston's work, there is little sense of direct imitation in this affecting tribute to the man who composed the memorable music for the television specials based on cartoonist Charles M. Schultz's Peanuts characters. Winston's solo piano style is fuller and more reflective than Guaraldi's, a hearty blend of powerful chords and subdued rhythms. It seems to embrace Guaraldi's tunes, both the Peanuts songs, like the title tune and "You're in Love, Charlie Brown," and Guaraldi's other music, like "Cast Your Fate to the Wind" and "Monterey," which seems to blend somber tones with an almost luminous quality. The warmth, wit, and whimsy here evoke memories of the best work of Guaraldi and Schultz. --Adam Rains
