LP, Vinyl record album

A sweet set of soul jazz tracks that features material pulled from Ray's killer albums for Cadet! The record collects tunes from Ray's stay at that label during the mid 60s – and it features many soulful piano numbers with tight small combo backing, and some occasional larger arrangements by Richard Evans. Titles include "Mrs Robinson", "Little Suzie", "Bag's Groove", "Cubano Chant", "Gotta Travel On", "Pata Pata", "Lil Darlin", "Ramblin", and the classic "Slow Freight". (Cover has ring & edge wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

The title cut's a classic jazz stepper in Chicago, with a subtly loping groove that works pretty darn well. Other tracks include "Blue ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fantasy, 1976. Very Good-
One of the fantastic electric Cal Tjader sessions from the 70s – with that mixture of vibes and electric piano that made his work of the time take on an even funkier sound than before! Lonnie Hewitt's at the keyboards here – and he's got a sly, slinky groove that's totally great – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tjader
Fantasy, Late 60s. Very Good-
An excellent album from legendary vibist Cal Tjader – and one of his truly electric albums! A key factor to the greatness of this one is keyboardist Al Zulaica – who plays some amazing Fender Rhodes on the album, really unlocking a whole new sound of Cal's vibes in the process! The ...
