Cal Tjader-Solar Heat/Sounds Out Burt Bacharach-
Cal Tjader Solar Heat / Sounds Out Burt Bacharach
new CD Digipack.
This Vampisoul 2-in-1 set (two complete albums on CD, a selection from them on LP) catches Tjader mid-career in the first two of his three albums for Skye Recordings. SOLAR HEAT was recorded in January 1968. Tjader is beautifully framed here by Gary McFarland's crystalline arrangements and Jo' o Donato's gorgeously understated organ. Tjader and McFarland are ideally matched here, particularly on the pop covers of "Never My Love" and "La Bamba" and McFarland's own "Fried Bananas" and the entrancing "Eye Of The Devil". Recorded eight months later, CAL TJADER SOUNDS OUT BURT BACHARACH is a curious collection that continued Skye's reputation for putting a pretty polish on pop perennials. Tjader sounds out an offbeat set of Burt Bacharach originals with a rhythm section of L.A. studio musicians and an ever-subtle sprinkling of overdubbed horns and strings.
