San Francisco-based white vibraphonist Cal Tjader, the former drummer in Dave Brubeck's trio (1949-51) and vibraphonist in George Shearing's quintet (1953-54), pioneered the mambo-jazz fusion on the 10" EP Lullaby of the Leaves (november 1951) in a trio featuring Vince Guaraldi on piano. His most original album, Latin Concert (september 1958), featured Willie Bobo on timbales and Mongo Santamaria on congas. A quartet led by Tjader (with trumpet and rhythm section) also performed Lalo Schifrin's Asian suite Several Shades of Jade (april 1963), one of exotica's most "ambient" results.
