Pristine Yellow Virgin Vinyl LP!
Cut by Kevin Gray & Pressed at RTI!

Sultry Tjader jazz!

Vibraphone legend Cal Tjader's fusion of different genres and styles was an acute influence on Carlos Santana (and Latin rock as a whole). On Solar Heat he stirs in tastes of exotica, funk, and of course Latin and jazz elements on this 1968 set of jazzed-up pop chestnuts and original bossas, like the delicious "Fried Bananas." Pressed at RTI, on colored vinyl!

Mastered by Bob Irwin, cut by Kevin Gray and pressed at RTI for optimum aural pleasure!

Where Cal Tjader leads, other musicians follow - about five years later.
-Al "Jazzbo" Collins
