Cal Tjader’s Modern Mambo Quintet – Mambo with Tjader {Fantasy}[OJC]


Review by Scott Yanow ~allmusic.com
Vibraphonist Cal Tjader was quickly becoming one of the most important forces in Latin jazz when he recorded the infectious music on this CD reissue. Joined by pianist Manuel Duran, bassist Carlos Duran, and a couple of percussionists, Tjader performs Latinized versions of such standards as “Cherry,” “This Can’t Be Love,” “I’ll Remember April,” “Autumn Leaves,” and even “Sonny Boy.” Decades later, this highly rhythmic music (which helped lay the groundwork for Latin jazz in general) still sounds fresh and lively.

01. Mamblues (mambo) 2:28
02. Midnight Sun (cha cha cha) 3:58
03. Sonny Boy (mambo) 2:37
