La perfecta forever!!!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Cal Tjader, Barry Rogers how much we miss you! If you liked Bamboleate you will love this one too. If you don't have either one get them! This is vintage La perfecta with Cal Tjader. The powerful trombone front line of Barry Rogers and Jose Rodrigues with Tjader's smooth vibes and as always Eddie's swinging piano. Add Manny Oquendo on timbales and bongo, Pat Quintana on maracas and vocals...the hottest band of the late 60's New York. My favorites: Los jibaros and Guajira en Azul...enjoy it!"

"If you are looking for some true Latin Jazz roots music, than look no further. This is no doubt a classic in the field of Latin Jazz , bringing together two of the most talented pioneers and prolific players of their era. Featuring the fiery Eddie Palmiera on piano and Cal Tjader on vibes, this disc is a knockout. The two leaders play in unison as one voice on this set of Latin rhythms, one leading the other into a series of improvisational dancing grooves. On this disc you get all the original material with Rudy Van Gelder doing the engineering plus many songs not featured on the original recording from 1966. The disc can go from soft, slow, lush vibraphone led melodies and switch to quick , uptempo, percussion syncopated beats that sizzle. The percussion work is smoking and results in some bouncy music. Some highlights include Eddie Palmieri leading on "Unidos," setting the high standard for the fellow band members to match which eventually they do. Palmieri's banging on the white keys gives way to Tjaders vibes smoother than a baton pass by a Gold Medal winning Olympic athelete. Like a race relay team, each band member hands off the lead flawlessly resulting in a classic song and a winner. Like many jazz bands from the sixties that wanted a piece of the pop market this disc features a familiar melody in the song, "On a Clear Day." Recorded by many different artists during that decade(check out Billy Pauls version) this song sounds out of place on the disc, although it was "Latinized " on this version. The pairing of Palmieri and Tjader works best on songs like "Picadillo, " "El Sonido Nuevo" and "Los Jibaros. " This disc has a Cuban feel to it and is most evident on songs like "Los Jibaros" where the Afro rhythms make you want to move. Or take the very traditional Cuban sounding "Guijira en Azul" where the Cuban folk rhythms dominate and make you want to dance even if you're sitting. In terms of a historical snapshot it shows the early influence of Latin jazz on future generations of musicians. This is a beautiful collection of music for anyone that likes Latin Jazz. Recommended for Latin Jazz fans."

"This is a fine collaborative work with one of the monster latin artists, Eddie Palmieri . They do it again on the album " Bamboleate ". Check out the piano playing on " Picadillo " ! That's one guy playing !"
