Soul Bird: Whiffenpoof

Soul Bird: Whiffenpoof by Cal Tjader
Released: Jan 1965
Label: Verve
Another tasty 1960s crossover session from the star vibraphonist, this one marries Latin and Soul Jazz with Bossa Nova and San Francisco Cool. Standouts include "The Prophet" and "Daddy Wong Legs" (named after SF jazz stalwart Herb Wong). Tjader's funky take on Sonny Rollins' "Doxy" deserved to be the dance floor smash that his earlier "Soul Sauce" proved.
