A fellow board member loaned me his VHS tape and I transferred it to avi format. It's not the best quality, but if you really want it I think we can figure out a way ...

Cal Tjader on "Playboy's Penthouse," with Mongo and Willie. 

They do "Cubano Chant," "Poinciana," and "Doxy."

I've never seen any Cal Tjader footage from this period before!

That's Lonnie Hewitt and Eddie Coleman on piano and bass, respectively. S. Duncan Reid and myself knew of this footage but never had seen it.

You're welcome! Either have I! We bought the first volume of the Playboy DVDs. This was on volume 2, which quickly went out of print. 

What a wonderful era, when jazz was presented style, elegance, and sophistication!

Thanks for making it available. It was recorded in November 1959 and aired January 3, 1960.

It is surprising that so few private video- or audiotapes of Tjader exist, as popular as he was. Just a handful.

Yeah, everything on YouTube that I've seen dates from jazz's depressing muttonchop sideburns/chest hair period.
