Ahead of this Sunday’s Cal Tjader Special at Floripa this Sunday, we present a selection of covers from the Latin Jazz master’s extensive discography. A veritable force in the jazz domain, Mr Tjader touched on a number of jazz styles throughout his career, always progressing his sound and surrounding himself with a team of expert musicians including Mongo Santamaria, Willie Bobo, Clare Fisher and Herbie Hancock. Right here they are all present and correct blending straight ahead, Latin and jazz funk into a heady brew. There’s a touch of Fender Rhodes, a few tasty Latin morceaux and if you’re into deep percussive business head straight to the 30 minute mark for some proper jazz dance bangers. We finish with a delicate version of the John Coltrane’s classic ‘Naima’. Take a little listen today and if you want more, join us at Floripa this coming Sunday for a masterclass in Cal
With the departure of our friend and colleague Jarred Rice to Canadian shores , it left a space for another DJ to step into the Jazz meet arena. Introducing our new resident DJ Lukas Kuhn. A regular at The Jazz Meet over the past couple of years and with extensive experience of DJing his own parties in London, we are happy to welcome Lukas to the team and here he provides us with his first Jazz Meet mix featuring an awesome selection of tasty jazz morsels from the former Czechoslovakian state. On this mix, Lukas takes us on a rip-roaring ride through his jazz crates taking in everything from funky jazz fusion and frenetic big band jazz, to a little Latin flavoured hard bop and jazz funk. We hope you enjoy this little playlist and thank you for listening. If it brightens up your day, drop Lukas a comment on our Mixcloud page!
