Davis Enterprise film critic Derrick Bang will discuss his upcoming book, “Vince Guaraldi at the Piano,” during a jazz concert devoted to the San Francisco pianist/composer, taking place at 2 p.m. Sunday at Roseville’s Sherman Clay piano dealer, 771 Pleasant Grove Blvd, Suite 150.

Bang will read short excerpts from his book — scheduled for release from McFarland Press in late June or early July — and talk about Guaraldi’s life.

Although best known for his scores to the early “Peanuts” television specials, Guaraldi had a very busy and artistically successful career outside that high-profile assignment; he won a Grammy Award for his 1962 instrumental hit, “Cast Your Fate to the Wind,” and also was the first musician to compose and perform a jazz Mass in the United States, which debuted at San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral in the spring of 1965.

Guaraldi died in 1976.

After his presentation, Bang will introduce pianist Jim Martinez and his trio, who will perform many of Guaraldi’s hits and lesser-known compositions. Martinez, a Steinway Artist, has a long association with Guaraldi’s music; the Sacramento-based keyboardist has recorded many of Guaraldi’s compositions, and has performed or recorded with jazz notables such as Lionel Hampton, Christian McBride, Russell Malone and Benny Golson.

Martinez and his band, teamed with vocalist Laura Didier, also present a themed show devoted to songs made famous by Doris Day. Their “A Tribute to the Music of Doris Day” was presented Feb. 18 at the Woodland Opera House.

Tickets to Sunday’s program are $20 general and $10 for youths and children under 16. For reservations or more information, call Martinez at (916) 804-8370 or visit www.jimmartinez.com. Sherman Clay Roseville can be reached at (916) 771-0808.
