But the really quirky part was the Vince Guaraldi connection. Vince was a well-respected jazz pianist from San Francisco whose earliest claim to very modest fame was as a collaborator of vibraphonist Cal Tjader.
His maternal uncle was whistler Muzzy Marcellino , just in case you were wondering. Sometimes I impress myself in retrospect. But how did I get to that Vince Guaraldi album? King , Dr. Unlike many songwriters who grow weary of their biggest hits, Guaraldi never minded taking requests to play it when he appeared live.
Of course, Vince went on to sign a lot more checks from his Charlie Brown projects. But there was one which made an indelible impression on me, that by We Five. They have been called the first electric group from San Francisco.
We Five began to juice up folk music—precursors of what would become folk-rock — just like contemporaries The Byrds, Jefferson Airplane, the Mamas and the Papas, and Spanky and Our Gang. They were cast in an electric, eclectic folk setting with a beat, with focus on the vocals.
I recently took a relisten to it. Their second album, Make Someone Happy, showed the group trying for a harder, bluesier sound, but producer Werber had far less enthusiasm for the project, and by the time it finally came out, the group had split up. Mike Stewart organized another version of We Five, and the reconstituted group survived until the end of the s, cutting a new album, Catch the Wind, with covers of the Donovan tune, George Harrison's "Here Comes the Sun," Gordon Lightfoot's "Early Morning Rain," and other contemporary compositions including a John Stewart song , for Vault.
By that time, however, there wasn't much interest in their brand of music. At various times We Five have reappeared in some version, playing the oldies circuit, with new players substituting for absent originals, but their actual history ended in Mike Stewart and Bob Jones later formed a short-lived group called West, and Stewart subsequently played with his brother John, and with Kenny Rankin, among others, while Pete Fullerton drifted in and out of the business during the late '60s and early '70s.
