Jazz pianist and composer Vince Guaraldi was born today in 1928 (d. 1976).  Older readers may recall his big hit Cast Your Fate to the Wind and younger the Peanuts TV specials for which he wrote and performed the music.

British rocker Spencer Davis was born today in 1939. Here are a few of his hits with Stevie Winwood on vocals.

Vocalist Phoebe Snow joined this world in 1950 (d. 2011). With a four-octave range, Phoebe could sing up a storm in several genres.
