This 1958 set finds original cool stylist Getz paired with vibraphonist Cal Tjader on a very enjoyable selection of jazz standards and Tjader originals. The album was recorded in less than three hours work. No tune, except two, had more than one take and even then it was a toss-up as to which to use. Getz seemed to blend with Tjader as if they had been playing together for years. Vince Guaraldi dug in, feeding the solo horn's chords and taking his own solos with the certainty usually known only to victims of long practice. Billy Higgins and Scott LaFaro read the charts for the original tunes and thought they had written them themselves, and especially the waltz, which is not always the easiest thing for a rhythm section to handle.
