In 1962, singer Anita O’Day and vibraphonist Cal Tjader were two of the most consistent adventurists working under the umbrella of Norman Granz’ Verve label. As likeminded cousins in a spread-out family, their meeting was inevitable, and the opportunity finally came to fruition with Time for Two. Above all, O’Day is a vocalist who loves to dance, so the spicy rhythms of Tjader’s Latin-oriented group were for her an ideal venue. The album explores an incredible diversity of material — everything from the loping blues of “I’m Not Supposed to Be Blue Blues” to the sugary “Mister Sandman,” coolly reimagined here — but the results really click when Anita is riding a tightly woven Cuban beat from Tjader’s band. On “Thanks for the Memory,” “Under a Blanket Of Blue,” “That’s Your Red Wagon” and “An Occasional Man” the Tjader band creates a elegant train-track over which O’Day’s voice can flurry and glide. Rarely has a tighter, prettier band been paired with a freer-moving vocalist. A match made in heaven.
