Callen Radcliffe "Cal" Tjader, Jr. (/ˈtʃeɪdər/ JAY-dər; July 16, 1925 – May 5, 1982) was an American Latin jazz musician, known as the most successful non-Latino Latin musician. He explored other jazz idioms, even as he continued to perform the music of Cuba, the Caribbean, and Latin America for the rest of his life. Tjader played the vibraphone primarily. He was accomplished on the drums, bongos, congas, timpani, and the piano. He worked with many musicians from several cultures.
Vibraphonist Cal Tjader is in typically fine form on this live set from 1968. His quintet at the time featured Armand Perazza on congas and pianist Joe Kloess and his repertoire ranged from Afro-Cuban jazz to occasional straightahead tunes. Six of the eight selections on this date are originals by band members or Gary McFarland. Although Tjader had been playing this style of music for 15 years by this time, he still was quite creative and enthusiastic, and is heard throughout in excellent form.

Tjader found his love for Latin music while performing with George Shearing in New York, but his own attempts at the style started once his tenure with the pianist ended; this 1954 album reflects Tjader’s early entry into Latin Jazz. These tracks originally appeared as several different short playing singles, a fact reflected in the song length. The groove moves forward with a rock solid momentum, showing the strength of the San Francisco scene, even at this early stage. In many ways, Tjader Plays Mambo displays an interesting early conception that already shined with many Tjader trademarks. Tjader changed the whole future of the West Coast Latin Jazz scene when he convinced percussionists Mongo Santamaria and Willie Bobo to leave New York and join his group on the West Coast.
