Within one of the most complex musical categories yet to surface, Cal Tjader quietly pioneered the genre as a jazz vibraphonist, composer, arranger and bandleader from the 1950s through the 1980s.

Reid tells the life story of a humble musician, written in a familiar, conversational tone that reveals both the friendship they shared and the complex charisma of Tjader.

Tjader left behind a legacy and a labyrinth of influence, attested by his universal audience and innovation that would change the course of jazz.

Expanded and revised, this intimate biography now includes interviews and anecdotes from Tjader's family, bandmates, and community, print research, and rare photographs, presenting a full history of an undervalued musician, as well as a detailed account of the progression of Latin Jazz.
