For two weeks, as soon as Joe woke up every day, there I was with the practice pad. Six weeks later he joined the Vince Guaraldi Trio, and played clubs in San Francisco, including several months at the Trident in Sausalito, and other well known clubs such as The Blackhawk and Jazz Workshop.
He also played on albums by Mel Torme, Peggy Lee, and Rosemary Clooney.

In January of 1963, he got a call from Victor Feldman who asked if he would be interested in going to Los Angeles to play a steady gig with his trio. The exposure of playing with Victor was tremendous.
Joe and I have been the best of friends ever since.”Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus In 1961, Colin emigrated to the U. In February of 1962, the record Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus was made, featuring the tune “Cast your fate to the Wind” which was Vince’s composition.
