Tribute to Cal Tjader – Selected & Mixed by DJ ASMA

Jazz Latin

Cal Tjader was one of the hardest working musicians in Jazz who mastered countless instruments and rose through the ranks working with Verdadero Cuban and Afro-Latin musicians, deviating from the popular Exotica style of the times.

When he finally came into his own in the Verve/Fantasy years, his creative talent was matched with sublime audio engineering delivering a crisp and unique sound. From the extended bongo rhythms to the soothing sounds of the vibraphone, Cal was a visionary who managed to bring a new attention to Latin music without compromise. The epitome of Latin Jazz can be discovered through this tribute mix to the Master Tjader.
