"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."

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.
