This is a live performance of Cal Tjader. He's lived with "live" audiences since his early days as a drummer with Dave Brubeck, and since then he stepped out as a leader for many years after that, he has been followed by crowds and creative players who have helped build for Tjader's group its great reputation as in-person performers. This time it's the Lighthouse Club at Hermosa Beach (CA) February 20 1969. And the star players are Armando Peraza (congas), Joe Kloess (electric piano), Paul Wraburton (bass) and Mike Buono on drums, with Cal on vibes. They are plugged in to the life and times and demands of an audience in love with their playing. Cal radiates miraculous warmth, pressing nerves, underscoring the primitive potential of the moment. In addition to the original release, an additional 7 songs from a show in Aspen, Colorado a year before that are included. A truly sparkling recording, explosive and perfect.
