Viva Cal Tjader!

By Jesse “Chuy” Varela KCSM Music Director

May 5th, 2012 marked the 30th anniversary of the passing of Cal Tjader, the tremendously influential Latin jazz vibraphonist, drummer and bandleader from the San Francisco Bay Area. In the 1950s and 1960s, Cal was one of the Bay Area's most important musical exports, showcasing a small combo sound blending a fusion of west coast cool jazz and the driving Afro-Cuban beats of the east. The story of how Tjader went from jazz drummer to Latin jazz vibes icon is that of an open minded individual whose musical passion led him to buck the status quo of the period. Cal embraced Latin music at a time when the people in the United States were legally segregated and many whites believed blacks, Latinos and other ethnic minorities were inferior. In his hometown of San Mateo in the 1940s, signs were placed at the train station stating, “No Darkies Allowed”. Using the rhythms from the Caribbean, Cal helped break down those social barriers and brought people of all colors and creeds together to hear his music and dance. As a result, his audiences reached a better understanding of what it meant to be an American. Yet he always made the point: “I am not an innovator or path finder, I am a participator.”

On Saturday July 7th at 7PM, join me for “Cal Tjader and the Rise of West Coast Latin Jazz”. I’ll be talking with Latin jazz icon and Tjader protégé, Poncho Sanchez, as part of the Stanford Jazz Festival at Dinkelspeil Auditorium on the Stanford University campus.
