Peace, I have been hearing Cal Tjader for ever. I knew this dude for his salsa and his latin jazz but had no idea he was so fresh. Homeboy has ridiculous achievements, tons of LPs. Any of his salsa lps are sure dance gems, but his more chill records, his standards, the strange fusions are filled with heavy, forested, lush sounds. Check out the short piece I wrote on “Aquarius” from his “Prophet LP. Word to my fellow tribe fans.
