Cal Tjader

Black Orchid
CD (Fantasy 24730), Re-Issued 1993
This is Cal's all-star latin group. Recorded between 1956 and 1959. 76 minutes.
"This CD has two complete previous albums, Cal Tjader Quintet and Black Orchid. I think putting two albums together on one CD is a great idea. This is one of my favorite periods of the Cal Tjader band. I've always loved the tune 'Bonita', written by Lonnie Hewitt, a very good friend of mine when I was with the Cal Tjader band. All of the parts to this bolero sound crystal clear--piano, vibes and bongos. Lonnie and Cal trade places on the tune 'Black Orchid.' Cal is playing piano and Lonnie is feeding Cal on vibes. This CD has a lot of great tunes." (Poncho Sanchez and Ramon Banda 96/97 Catalog)
