Master percussionist Sammy Figueroa and his Latin Jazz Explosion play a musical tribute to the great Cal Tjader. Long regarded as one of the world’s great congueros, Figueroa has performed on countless records in a multitude of musical styles. In addition to popular artists such as David Bowie, Chaka Khan and Mariah Carey, Figueroa has also worked with jazz greats like Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Quincy Jones, and George Benson. From 2010 to 2013, he toured the world with the Rollins and appears on his last three albums, the Grammy-nominated Road Shows Vol. 2Road Shows Vol. 3 and the recently released Holding The Stage, Road Shows Vol. 4.  When Figueroa plays percussion, he is telling a story, creating a playful conversation with other musicians, and taking the listener on a musical journey.
