Back to some early Brubeck. This is Fantasy 3-1, another one older than me from 1951. Dave on piano, Cal Tjader on bongos, drums and vibes, and Ron Croty on bass. It really is, as the cover says "distinctive rhythm instrumentals". Cal Tjader had no formal musical training, and once learned to play bongos overnight when he heard that Nick Esposito was looking for a bongo player to make some recordings. The vibes he picked up while at San Jose State College, while also playing in local bands. He decided at 14 he wanted to be a jazz musician. Seems to have worked out all right.
