O’s Notes: There is a festive spirit with the calypso vibe on “Cal’s Pals” that continues over nine original and classic compositions on !Yo! Few musicians can extract such melodic tones out of a tuba/fluba than Jim Self! He surrounds himself with a fine ensemble called The Tricky Lix Latin Jazz Band. Composer/trombonist Francisco Torres, trumpeter Ron Blake and bassist Rene Camacho are among the stellar musicians. They show poise on relaxed tunes like Self’s “Encognito” and while keeping a blistering pace on the title track. This is a delicious taste of Cuban music.
