Blue Tjade continues Mike Freeman's multicultural beat with a tip of the hat to Cal Tjader. Grounded in jazz, Latin jazz, and salsa, Mike offers a unique group sound through his music, playing, and instrumentation. This outing features stalwarts of the New York music scene: bassist Ruben Rodriguez, conga master Chembo Corniel, and drummer/percussionist Willie Martinez. Chicago's highly regarded Jim Gailloreto rounds out the group on tenor saxophone and flute.
