A Must Have
M. Ramirez | CA, USA | 01/10/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The first time I heard Cuban Fantasy was with Charlie Palmieri with Ray Barretto on YouTube. I did some checking out on the song and discovered Cal Tjader; I've seen Pat Matheney, David Sanborn, Joe Sample, Spyro Gyra..on and on. I wish I could have seen him perform or have been in one of these sessions. If you like to chill, this is a must have. I have his greatest hit's and I like this CD the most. I was driving and at a stop light got complimented on the music, that's how good this CD is, Enjoy!!!"
Tjader Live with an Awesome Band!

"I have over a dozen Cal Tjader CD's, and this is perhaps my favorite. If you liked his "Cal Tjader Plugs In" disc, you'll love this live release. Like the "Plugs In" recording, there's a strong emphasis on "groove" playing with an electric guitar & keyboards giving a more contemporary sound to the band. But unlike that disc, these are live versions where the band is allowed to really stretch out and explore the tunes. The playing is top-notch, the result of Tjader keeping a cohesive group together for years that knew each other inside and out. The tunes really cook, and are played with enough dexterity and inventiveness to satisfy any hardcore jazz fan. And people who just like a good groove will enjoy this too. All the tunes are very melodic and listenable, but this is definitely NOT a "smooth jazz" CD. These guys are incredible musicians playing full-tilt, and it captures their sound and perfectly. This disc is currently bargain priced and extremely well recorded for a live session. Don't miss out on this one!"
