Wow, this is already the twentieth song, I'm a little bit surprised myself 😉
Ok, let's look at this week's tune, it's called Fenwyck's Farfel, what a strange title!
The widely acclaimed Jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi (17.7.1928-6.2.1976), especially known as the composer of songs from the Charlie Brown television cartoon, composed this song and recorded it 1956 in San Francisco. It was the first full session led by himself.
Fenwyck's Farfel is a warm, lightly swinging tune based on a minor blues. The harmonical interaction between Guaraldi's piano and Duran's guitar is simply beautiful.
It's quite slow but I wanna dance immediately when I hear this song. It would be great to see a choreography to this song one day!
