Yesterday would’ve been Cal Tjader‘s 86th birthday. In honor of the late, great vibraphonist and Latin musician — who died of a heart attack on May 5, 1982 at age 56 — let’s listen to just one of his many brilliant contributions to Latin jazz. This is “Shoshana,” originally released posthumously in 1984 on Good Vibes (Concord) and later released as part of the two-CD set called Cool Fire.
Tjader was joined for the recording sessions by Mark Levine on piano, Poncho Sanchez on congas, Vince Lateano on drums and timbales, Roger Glenn on flute and percussion, and finally Gary Foster on flute, soprano and alto saxophone.
Enjoy Cal Tjader’s “Shoshana”!
