On 16 January 1953, Cal Tjader accepted an offer to join the George Shearing Quintet. The New York group spent the majority of their time on the road over the next sixteen months, but they were in the midst of a gig one night at Birdland when bassist Al McKibbon encouraged Tjader to take a little walk with him. “While on a half-hour break,” Tjader recalled, “Al and I entered the Palladium Ballroom through its service entrance on Fifty-Third Street. The orchestras of Machito and Tito Puente (below) were playing… and they flipped me. I was knocked flat when I saw how Puente utilised his vibes in Latin music.” Later, he told McKibbon, “I’ve got to go back to San Francisco and get a band like this.”

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.
