| Book Description: |
The contributions of the late pioneering jazz vibraphonist, composer, arranger and band leader Cal Tjader have largely been undervalued. This book is a major corrective. It explores the Grammy winner's 40-year professional life, and his explorations of both Latin and jazz music. It ncludes many interviews with family, friends and colleagues; all the liner notes throughout Tjader's prolific recorded output; and interviews with the man himself as well as relevant articles and books.
