Cal Tjader -Agua Dulce- 1971 US

Callen Radcliffe "Cal" Tjader, Jr. (July 16, 1925 – May 5, 1982) was an American Latin jazz musician, known as the most successful non-Latino Latin musician. He also explored various other jazz idioms but never abandoned the music of Cuba, the Caribbean, and Latin America, performing it until his death.
Tjader primarily played the vibraphone. He was accomplished on the drums, bongos, congas, timpani, and the piano. He worked with numerous musicians from several cultures. He is often linked to the development of Latin rock and acid jazz. Although fusing jazz with Latin music is often categorized as "Latin jazz" (or, earlier, "Afro-Cuban jazz"), Tjader's output swung freely between both styles. (wiki)
"Agua Dulce" released in 1971 on Fantasy ‎Records (F–8416).From this album i chose "Agua Dulce", "Ran Kan Kan" and "Gimme Shelter". Enjoy!!!
