Cal Tjader Plays The Contemporary Music Of Mexico & Brazil

CD (Item 660185) Verve, 1962 — Condition: Used
$7.99 ...

CD

A groovy 60s session from vibist Cal Tjader – and an excellent little Latin set, with a mixture of bossa nova and Latin jazz that goes way beyond the promise of the title! The great Clare Fischer arranged the set – and if you know his work with Cal, you know that he's got a wonderful approach to jazz that works perfectly with Tjader's unique phrasing – a spacious sensibility, and a great sense of timing – one that always ensures the tunes sparkle with a sweetly stepping groove. Fischer plays piano on the record – and other players include Laurindo Almeida on guitar, Paul Horn on reeds, Johnny Rae on timbales, and Milt Holland on percussion. Titles include "Choro E Batuque", "Nao Diga Nada", "Elizete", "Imagen", "Vai Querer", and "Que Tristeza".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Digipack cover has some wear and a very light stain in one corner.)

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Two of Cal's great albums for Verve that mix jazzy vibes, Latin grooves, and kitschy "Eastern" scoring! Several Shades Of Jade is a killer batch of tracks that's right in line with Cal's best work from the 60's. It's got a monster version of Horace Silver's "Tokyo Blues", plus ... CD

Huracan
Laser Light, 1978. Used
A great little 70s electric session by Cal – and one that was only originally issued on a 45rpm direct to disc recording. That original 4-track LP has 2 more tracks added to it, and the whole thing's a very tasty batch of Latiny grooves with a sweet mellow 70s sound. Cal's vibes are backed ... CD

Solar Heat
Skye/DCC, Late 60s. Used
One of Cal Tjader's best albums ever – and a sweetly electric side that features Joao Donato on organ and Gary McFarland on vibes! The record is a brilliant extension of Cal's styles at Verve – a bit of Latin, a bit of jazz, with some easily grooving numbers that have just the right ... CD

One of the rarest albums by the guitar jazz great Tal Farlow!

The titles are ... CD

Oscar Peterson

Night Train
Verve, 1962. Used
One of Oscar Peterson's biggest records ever – one of those albums we turn up time and time again when digging through classic jazz collections – and for good reason too, given the lasting power of the set! The album's got a rock-solid sound that's filled with soul – almost a bit ... CD

Lester Young joins the Oscar Peterson trio – and the result is a classic meeting of the minds from early 50s Verve! Young's tone is tremendous throughout – that sharp-yet-cool style that had such a big influence on other 50s players, and which gets some great support here from Peterson' ... CD
