During his teenage years, Cal Tjader and his friends would go across the San Francisco Bay to Sweet’s Ballroom in Oakland. On Sundays, they would listen to all the major swing bands of the era, including Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, and Artie Shaw. “I remember one of those Sundays in particular,” said Tjader, who was working as a drummer with a Dixieland combo at the time. “They had a Gene Krupa contest, which I won by playing ‘Drum Boogie.’ It was a big thrill for a sixteen-year-old, except that something else happened that same day that completely overshadowed the drum contest - the date was December 7, 1941" Tjader was remembering where he was on the day the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbour naval base.

"Cal Tjader is another big influence on my playing. Not long after I started playing the vibes, I got into his album from 1958, Cal Tjader-Stan Getz Sextet. It’s a brilliant album and Tjader is in incredibly heavyweight company, including Billy Higgins on drums." Vibes player Nat Steele, who will be performing as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival next month

Cal Tjader was undoubtedly the most famous non-Latino leader of Latin jazz bands, an extraordinary distinction. From the 1950s until his death, he was practically the point man between the worlds of Latin jazz and mainstream bop; his light, rhythmic, joyous vibraphone manner could comfortably embrace both styles.
