Cal Tjader • Hip Vibrations

Tjader's group is augmented by a brass section featuring such heavyweights as J.J. Johnson and Marvin Stamm. Herbie Hancock's on piano, Ron Carter and Richard Davis alternate on bass, Ray Barretto is on conga and Benny Golson arranged most of the tracks.

The brass gives the 'Tjader sound' an additional kick, while the typical Verve formula is retained with a mixture of jazz standards and pop hits of the day. Highlights are a feel-good version of Windy, which adapts perfectly to the latin jazz treatment, a nice arrangement with some Brazilian percussion for the Baden Powell/Vinicius de Moraes standard Canto de Ossanha and some great soloing from Hancock on the longer pieces Django and Blues March.


El grupo de Tjader se amplía con una sección de latón que incluye a pesos pesados como J.J. Johnson y Marvin Stamm. Herbie Hancock está en el piano, Ron Carter y Richard Davis se alternan en el bajo, Ray Barretto está en la conga y Benny Golson arregló la mayoría de los temas.

Los metales le dan al 'sonido Tjader' un toque adicional, mientras que la fórmula típica de Verve se mantiene con una mezcla de estándares de jazz y éxitos pop del día. Lo más destacado es una versión para sentirse bien de Windy, que se adapta perfectamente al tratamiento del jazz latino, un bonito arreglo con algo de percusión brasileña para el Canto de Ossanha del estándar de Baden Powell/Vinicius de Moraes y algunos grandes solos de Hancock en las piezas más largas Django y Blues March.

  1. Even if I prefer the latin side of Tjader, this album is very cool! One can notice the stellar line-up and Benny Golson's arrangements ("Moanin'"!). Nice version of "Canto De Ossanha".

    Thank you for sharing this one Jorge!

    1. Tjader is a musician who has never stayed in his comfort zone, that is why in most of his discography he offers variety with a first class level.
      Thank you for commenting.

  2. And I am a big fan of the unfortunately much too early deceased singer from Brazil Luiz Henrique, who is represented on this wonderful album with his song "A Waltz For Diane", but also the rest of the album is very convincing, thanks again for that!

    1. there's a couple of Luiz's themes in the next post:
