This is probably the best Cal Tjader record I've bought so far. I really enjoyed the gentle funkiness of his 'solar heat' album on the skye label, so was really looking for more from that era (1969-70), but when I found this slightly earlier Verve release (in less than perfect shape), I took a chance. I'm very glad I did - the record achieves a really superb blend of jazzy—yet still very pop—grooves and vibes. Highlights for me so far have been 'Canto De Ossanha' and 'Sweet Honeybee', but the whole album is solid.
