Cal Tjader was the master of a fluid West Coast brand of Latin jazz. The first ten compositions here, first released as Latin for Lovers, feature Tjader's classic quintet--Vince Guaraldi on piano, Al McKibbon on bass, Afro-Cuban greats Mongo Santamaria and Willie Bobo handling percussion, Tjader applying his liquid touch to the vibraphone--joined by four strings and Paul Horn on reeds.
The second half of the CD was originally issued as San Francisco Moods. The compositions are a musical homage to the city Tjader loves: its neighborhoods and landmarks, the windy bay on which he sailed, and even, in "Viva Cepeda," its baseball team.

with Paul Horn, Vince Guaraldi, Al McKibbon, Mongo Santamaria, Willie Bobo, Boris Blinder, Harry Moulin, Frances Wiener, Eugene Winkler, Albert White, Eddie Duran, John Mosher, Jack Weeks, John Markham, Vince Guaraldi
