Vibes wizard belts out a fiery Latin jazz gem with a version on the flip that's pure fatback funk. Cal Tjader was a vibraphonist of Swedish-American heritage based in California, contracted to Fantasy Records. In 1958 he cut the frenzied "Mamblues," a truly amazing piece of bangin' Latin jazz. In 1972 the song was revisited on the soundtrack to the full-length adult-rated cartoon movie Fritz The Cat. Only this time lean, mean time-keepin' machine Bernard "Pretty" Purdie was in the traps.
