There is much to like about this version by vibraphonist Cal Tjader of Clare Fischer’s modern classic “Morning.” It is from a brief period in the 1970s when Fischer was a member of Tjader’s band. The recording opens with an aware audience greeting Fischer’s electric piano introduction with the enthusiasm that one might show in encountering an old friend, and that’s what the tune seems to be to these listeners. Fischer is also featured in a compelling solo. Of the several versions of the tune that Tjader recorded, this may be the most captivating. (Tjader is pictured left, Fischer right).
Rifftides management is mystified by the “video unavailable” announcement that may appear. If you don’t succeed in getting it to play, you can go directly to this youtube screen to watch it. But first, try the arrow in the panel below.
Have a wonderful weekend
