O’s Notes: If you don’t have the legendary vibraphonist, Cal Tjader in your collection, this is one to Catch The Groove! It’s a two-disc, live compilation capturing Cal leading six different quintets over 1963-1967 at Seattle’s Penthouse Jazz Club, a venue that lasted from 1963 to 1968. Cal was perhaps the most famous non-Latino, Latin musician. What is indisputable is Tjader’s prowess on vibes and the fluid melodies you can witness on these 27 classic selections including a few originals.
