Also  Cal made frequent trips to New York and began listening to the Latin New York bands of Tito Puente and Machito.

During this time he developed an active in interest in Latin percussion.

After leaving George Shearing band, Cal formed his own group  and began to record prolifically for Fantasy.

Cal Tjader recorded a series of over 20 albums for Fantasy between 1954 and 1962.

In 1963 he transferred to Verve label.

In those days Verve label producer was Creed Taylor.

So Cal made his biggest-selling record “Soul Sauce” in 1964.

Creed Taylor as a producer is amazing.

Cal Tjaderは1949年から1951年にかけてDave Brubeckバンドで演奏しました。
その後、ニューヨークでGeorge Shearingバンドに加入し、演奏の合間にTito PuenteやMachitoを聞きラテン・パーカッションへの関心が高まりました。
当時、VerveレーベルのプロデューサーはCreed Taylorでした。
1964年に最大のヒット作「Soul Sauce」を製作しました。
個人的な感想ですがプロデューサーとしてのCreed Taylorは素晴らしいです。
