Hadley CalimanIapetus ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
A fantastic statement of soul from reedman Hadley Caliman – a player who gave us a handful of really amazing albums in the 70s! This set is definitely one of those gems – as it's got this flowing mix of spiritual currents that's really powerful – maybe more of a west coast take on the post-Coltrane energy of the time – with Hadley on flute and tenor, working with Luis Gasca on trumpet, Todd Cochran on piano, James Leary on bass, and Woody Theus on drums. All artists are maybe even more bold and powerful together here than on albums under their own names – working with Caliman's dark vision to soar out in wonderful ways – with added percussion from Victor Pantoja and Hungria Garcia. Titles include the groovy "Quadrivium", plus the longer cuts "Iapetus", "Dee's Glee", and "Ambivalence". CD

Mongo SantamariaSoul Bag ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
A stone 60s smoker from Mongo Santmaria – and a great little set that really lives up to its title! The "soul" reference points to the record's host of 60s soul tunes, which are given a hip Latin spin by Mongo – working here with killer boogaloo arrangements from the great Marty Sheller – with a combo that includes soulful reed lines from Hubert Laws, Sonny Fortune, and Mauricio Smith – plus trumpet from Luis Gasca, and some killer drums from the legendary Pretty Purdie! The mix of jazz and Latin players on the record is really wonderful – and although the tunes are familiar, the presentation is mighty fresh – especially given the way the horn players manage to pack so much into their solos. Titles include "Baby What You Want Me to Do", "Hot Dog", and "Chili Beans" – plus cool versions of "Cold Sweat", "In The Midnight Hour", "Respect", and "Green Onions". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing.)

Cal TjaderAgua Dulce ... CD
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
One of our favorite Cal Tjader albums ever – and one of the first to have his vibes working alongside Fender Rhodes! The record's a surprising little set from the start of the 70s – one that almost has Cal picking up some of the New York sounds of a few years before, then mixing them up with a hipper west coast electric style in the end – a Fantasy Records vibe that meshes together a few different modes, and comes up with a rich new style in the process! There's a bit of vocals on the set – somewhat unusual for Cal Tjader, and often used to augment the soulfully snapping grooves of the best tunes – but even more amazing is the heavy use of Fender Rhodes, played here by the amazing Al Zulaica, who's work on the album really ranks right up there with the best early 70s keyboardists on the coast! Zulaica's piano is amazing next to Cal's warmly chromatic vibes – and other instrumentation includes saxes from Bill Perkins, flute from Mel Martin, trumpet from Luis Gasca, moog from Rita Dowling, and percussion from both Pete and Coke Escovedo. Titles include the killer "Aqua Dulce (Cool-Ade)", a fantastic version of "Gimme Shelter", a sublime of Clare Fischer's "Morning", and the cuts "Ran Kan Kan", "Descarga Cubana", "Curacao", and "Somewhere In The Night".

Cal TjaderDescarga (Agua Dulce/Live At The Funky Quarters) ... CD
Fantasy, 1971/1972. Used ... $7.99
2 sublime electric sets from the mighty Cal Tjader – both incredible Fender Rhodes records from the 70s! Agua Dulce is a very surprising little set – one that almost has Cal picking up some of the New York sounds of a few years before, then mixing them up with a hipper west coast electric style in the end! There's a bit of vocals on the set – somewhat unusual for Cal Tjader, and often used to augment the soulfully snapping grooves of the best tunes – but even more amazing is the heavy use of electric piano, played here by the amazing Al Zulaica, who's work on the album really ranks right up there with the best early 70s keyboardists on the coast! Zulaica's piano is amazing next to Cal's warmly chromatic vibes – and other instrumentation includes saxes from Bill Perkins, flute from Mel Martin, trumpet from Luis Gasca, moog from Rita Dowling, and percussion from both Pete and Coke Escovedo! A nice mix of jazz and Latin stuff, with a sweet electric vibe, and a sound that hints at the direction Cal would take in the 70s. Titles include the killer "Aqua Dulce (Cool-Ade)", a fantastic version of "Gimme Shelter", a sublime of Clare Fischer's "Morning", and the cuts "Ran Kan Kan", "Descarga Cubana", "Curacao", and "Somewhere In The Night". Live At The Quarters is one of Cal's best electric sides from the 70s – and it boasts some amazing work on Fender Rhodes from Al Zulaica – a player we only know from a handful of Tjader records, and who has an amazing way of snaking in soulfully alongside the vibes! The group is small and tight – really just bass, drums, and congas – leaving plenty of room for the Fender Rhodes and vibes to intermingle wonderfully! Titles include the classic groover "Leyte", plus "Soul Sauce III", "Philly Mambo", "Cubano Chant", and "Manteca". CD
