In a Latin Bag - Cal Tjader

In a Latin Bag
Callen Radcliffe Tjader Junior is one of the leading exponents of music which owes as much to jazz as it does to Latin-America. On record he is seldom heard without a rhythm section containing bongo or congo drums while his knowledge of the intricate south-of-the-border rhythms is something of a legend.

This edition combines two fine Tjader albums that have been out of print for more than half a century. The 1961 set, IN A LATIN BAG, Tjader's debut album for Verve was produced by Creed Taylor and features Armando Peraza on bongos, Paul Horn on flute, Al McKibbon on bass, Wilfredo Vicente on congas, Johnny Rae on timbales and Lonnie Hewitt on piano. The material represents both edges of the Tjader blade. Pauneto's Point, Davito and Mambo in Miami are straightforward Latin vehicles, Green Dolphin Street, Speak Low and Misty are favourite jazz pieces, Paul Horn's Ecstasy and Half and Half are essentially jazz compositions that sound right with a Latin rhythm section, while Theme from Ben-Hur and Triste are mood pieces that defy categorisation.

The second part of our presentation is the live recording CAL TJADER - SATURDAY NIGHT, SUNDAY NIGHT AT THE BLACKHAWK, recorded at The Blackhawk Cafe in San Francisco over a weekend in late January 1962. Here Tjader, Hewitt and Rae are augmented by the young bassist Freddy Schreiber. This collection points up most aspects of Tjader's musical philosophy, from his identification with contemporary jazz (Benny Golson's Stablemates), and interest in new material (Gary McFarland's Weep), to his regard for the past (Stompin' at the Savoy) and affection for superior show tunes (Summertime). Cal's ability to stimulate his colleagues into new creative directions can be deduced, too, from Freddy Schreiber's Fred's Ahead and Lonnie Hewitt's Noonie's Groove, while the leader's own compositional skill is represented by the characteristically melodic 222 Time.

New Wave - Expanded 2 CD edition
"With their 1993 debut album, New Wave, The Auteurs established themselves as one of England's best guitar bands of the early '90s” Allmusic.com

Fronted by Luke Haines, The Auteurs arrived on the cusp of shifting musical scenes. Madchester was dead, Britpop was about to be born. · Originally released in February 1993 on Hut Records, New Wave was the debut album by The Auteurs. Produced by Phil Vinall and Haines, the album featured the singles Showgirl and How I Could Be Wrong. The album was well received on release, perceived as being part of a nascent Brit-Pop scene, and was nominated in the second Mercury Music Prize in 1993 (won by Suede) and was in Q magazine’s Top 10 Albums of 1993.

This re-issue, featuring 34 tracks across 2CDs compiled by Haines, includes key b-sides, acoustic tracks, the band’s BBC Radio 1 session from 1993 and 6 previously unreleased 4 track demos straight from Haines’s archive.

The 2CD set comes in lavish packaging and includes brand new sleevenotes by Luke Haines.
