CAL TJADER - GUARABE
Cal Tjader for Fantasy from 1977.
Let's face facts:I am a Cal Tjader freak and even more so a total sucker for his 70s lps on Fantasy which I have managed to collect in their entirety.So here's one that hasn't been posted before-I hope !
Have a read of an incredibly underwelming review from Scott Yanow at AMG:
During this period, the influential Latin-jazz pioneer was leading a hornless quintet/sextet that included Clare Fischer\'s electric piano as a key part of the band's sound. With guitarist Bob Redfield, bassist Rob Fisher, drummer Pete Riso, the talented (but at the time obscure) percusionist Poncho Sanchez and Carmelo Garcia on timbales keeping the proceedings heated, Tjader's group livens up such numbers as "This Masquerade," "Morning" and even the pop tune "If."
Ripped @ 320 from the original vinyl.
